Gmail Just Made It Super Easy To Block People

We all have that list of, like, ten people who email us about crap we don’t care about — or just don’t want to see. Now, with two clicks, Gmail will let you block them from ever showing up in your inbox again. This is progress!

How To Organise Your Google Hangouts Just Like Email 

You probably know Google Hangouts as an app that pops up in the corner of a browser tab or on your smartphone, but it’s possible to archive your messages in Gmail too — from here they can be searched, labelled and starred so you can bring up the most important ones whenever you need to.

Flag All Company Emails For Faster Inbox Processing

Internal emails from the company you work for can be crucially important or a complete irrelevance — either way, being able to spot these company messages at a glance in your inbox can make a big difference to your email productivity. Here’s how to quickly set up a filter in three of the most popular desktop clients.

Go Install This Chrome Extension For Sending Self-Destructing Gmails

Gmail’s Undo Send feature gives users of Google’s free email service up to 30 seconds to change their mind on a sent email before it leaves their outbox. But a new Chrome extension called Dmail lets you send messages with a self-destruct timer — or the ability to remotely delete them whenever you want.

Want A Feature That Actually Unsends Email? Talk To AOL

But before Google tackles that feature request, I’ve got another career-saving idea.

You Used To Need A Court Order To Get Gmail To Unsend

This week we’re celebrating the arrival of an unsend button in Gmail. But one did not always simply unsend an email — in fact, just last year, Goldman Sachs had to get a court order before Google would unsend an email full of sensitive data that had mistakenly arrived in the inbox of the wrong person.

The Google Photos Moment

I have over 300GB of photos and videos sitting on a couple hard drives. I never look at them. I’ve never found the time to organise them. They just sit there. The new Google Photos claims it can fix that. It’s like Gmail for your photos, the company whispers.

Finally, Gmail's Android App Can Show All Your Accounts In One Inbox

Gmail just got a lot better on Android devices. Finally, after years of gripes, you can finally look at all of your email accounts at once with a new unified inbox. It even looks prettier too!

I’m writing this in an email draft right now. I love Gmail’s auto-saving drafts a lot. Putting stuff in drafts makes it easily accessible and searchable. I know I’m not alone in compulsively saving things in “drafts” that aren’t emails. What’s the strangest thing you’ve got saved?
