I once used Rediffmail for mails, and before that it was Hotmail, but since 2004, I, like many others, am using Gmail. In the initial days Gmail was just like another mail, and what drove people to Gmail was Google’s promise and unlimited space.
That was it, but then came the lab feature which changed the game of e- mailing. Gmail became a system, and it started providing one-stop solution for many a thing. The latest addition to the list of Gmail lab feature is Google Docs preview.
Google has made it possible for us to preview content of Google Docs document, spreadsheet, and presentation files inside the mail. This feature is new addition and to enable this feature you need to go to setting and then to lab.
Once in the lab, you should enable previews for other content type as well. Google allows you to preview YouTube videos, Picasa and Flickr images within the mail itself. You can even preview Yelp listing inside your Gmail.
You can also listen to the voice mails that you received from inside your mail. There are many more features in the Gmail labs that are worth enabling. I have been using it for quite some time now.
It is only when you used Gmail lab features that you come to know that Gmail is much more than unlimited space. Unlike every other mail, Gmail is not just a mail, but it’s a system that has many cool features.
Go now and enable features in lab and witness the change in the mailing experience. You will be as thrilled as I am about the cool features of Gmail.
