The Google-owned, web-based email service GMail announced today that they have added five new features to their site to make sending and receiving mail more convenient for users.

Created in 2006, GMail is , “an experiment in a new kind of webmail, built on the idea that you should never have to delete mail and you should always be able to find the message you want”, says a Google representative.

The email service quickly gained popularity because of the loyal following of search engine giant and site owner Google, as well as its initial features. GMail’s features, such as an interface compatibility to 40 languages, 2, 500+ storage capacity, instant messaging, and superior spam protection appealed to users that had grown tired of competing email services.

Today GMail made the announcement that they added even more features to their email service, to the delight of users. Without much further ado, here are the five new features.

Reply on top
For faster replies to email, the service moved the reply button to the top of the page, eliminating the need to scroll to the bottom of a lengthy message to reply. There are also other options listed under the dropdown arrow.

Embarrassment-reducing new message notifications

This feature notifies a user when someone replies or sends a message to them while they are in the middle of composing a message. Thus, enabling them to see how someone has replied before they send their response.

Forward all
Users may select the “forward all” link while they are viewing a conversation if they wish to forward the entire content of the message, instead of just one thing.

Chat even when friends are offline

If your friend goes offline you can still see the contents of the message when they sign back on, so no conversation is ever lost or forgotten.

Get GMail on your mobile phone
This new and fast service can be downloaded on your mobile phone at gmail.com/app. Once it is downloaded you can start accessing your GMail via your mobile phone.

Certainly Google will continue to improve and add features to GMail, and it will be very interesting to see what they come up with next.
