Jakarta – Exactly 15 years ago, precisely on April 1, 2004, Google launched Gmail. Many people think that this web-based email client is an April 1 joke, including Sundar Pichai, who on the same day also conducted interviews to become a Google employee.
15 years later, Pichai became the CEO of Google and Gmail became one of Google's most popular services, with 1.5 billion users per month.
To celebrate his birthday, Gmail also received a number of new features, such as the ability to send emails in the future and Smart Compose. Google said the email delivery scheduling feature is designed so people can enjoy another digital wellness when they are out of business hours, as reported by CNET, Tuesday (4/2/2019).
This feature allows users to choose to send at the recommended time, such as tomorrow morning at 8:00 AM or tomorrow afternoon at 2:00 PM. But you can also choose a more specific time in the menu.
For the Gmail app version, this feature can be accessed by recording the three-dot icon to the right of the email you want to send. Then select the "Schedule send" option and select the desired time.
As for the web version, there will be an option to the right of the submit button for "Sending Schedule". After that, the steps are the same as the version of the application.
In addition to Google, it also features Smart Compose features for all Android smartphones. Previously, this feature was only available for Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL.
This feature allows users to automatically populate e-mail as they type using artificial intelligence. With this update, Smart Compose is also present in more languages, namely Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese.
