Gmail Continues Upgrading Services

    November 10, 2006

Gmail continues moving ahead in the competitive market of free webmail services and has just announced some added new features toits expanding and very popular service.

Information released today by Gmail reveals that there a total of five upgrades. The first is that it’s no longer necessary to scroll to the bottom of a long message to find the REPLY link. Now there’s a Reply button on top, along with a lot of other options under the little dropdown arrow.

The service also has reduced new message notifications. If someone sends a reply while you’re in the middle of reading a conversation (or replying to it), you’ll get a notification that a new message has arrived. Click UPDATE CONVERSATION to see what you’ve missed.

There’s also the addition of FORWARD ALL. When viewing a conversation, link on the right if you want to forward the entire conversation instead of just one message.

Now you can chat even when your friends are offline. If you’re chatting with a friend who goes offline, your friend will be able to see whatever you were typing the next time he or she goes online.

And lastly, Gmail is right on top of the latest moblogging technology, as this continually evolves and is pushed in the industry. Simply point your phone to, download it one, and start accessing Gmail on your phone with just a click or two. Heading in the direction of video on your cellphone, you’ll be able to have all your regular account capabilities along with viewing attachments such as photos, documents, and .pdf files.

Gmail still comes with built-in Google search technology and over 2,600 megabytes of storage (and growing every day). You can keep all your important messages, files and pictures forever, use search to quickly and easily find anything you’re looking for, and make sense of it all with a new way of viewing messages as part of conversations.

There are no pop-ups or untargeted banner ads in Gmail, only small text ads. Ads and related information are relevant to your messages, so instead of being obtrusive, they may even be useful for once.

Gmail also integrates instant messaging right into the email experience, so you can stay in even better touch with your friends when you’re online. Easy, efficient and maybe even fun to use. It’s a whole new way to think about email. It’s Google’s approach to email.

And so far, it continues to be a phenomenal success!
