Have you noticed that the Gmail compose feature is looking a little different these days???
Google has rolled out a new feature when composing and responding to emails. Almost all of the features of the old compose are present in the new compose (with the exception of calendar invitations and emoticons). When Google rolls out new features, they typically have a period of time when switching to the feature is optional. Eventually, they switch everyone over, and I believe that will happen in the near future. If you want, you can switch over to the new compose and try it out, and if you don’t like it, you can still switch back until Google makes it mandatory.
If you would like to switch to the new compose just follow these steps:
- Log into your Gmail account
- Click Compose
- Click on the link that says "Try out the new compose feature" (See picture attachment)
- With the new compose, you can still browse emails in your inbox while you are typing a new email.
- You can also compose more than one email at a time.
- See the attached video for an overview of where the features are located in compose:
