Gmail Finally Introduces Preview Pane For Desktop Computers

With the launch of new applications and services by Google, people have started to switch to GMail massively. But not many people would find GMail the way they hoped it to be.

When i switched to GMail, i didnt find it much impressive and to me, it seemed like old-fashioned inbox. I was pretty much used to the Preview Pane which Yahoo, Hotmail and almost every other e-mail websites provided.

Gmail Updated Version For Android

Google has released the latest version 2.3.5 of Gmail for Android phones. The previous application just redirected your mails from Gmail to your Android phones. But this new version has some marvellous updates.

One of the best features of this new version is the selection of specific labels. You can label a specific sender which will allow you to get a notification only when that labelled user has sent you a mail. In short, you won’t be bothered by getting a notification every time you receive an email on Gmail.

Google Implements Two-Step Authentication Worldwide

In June 2011, many Gmail accounts were compromised by hackers. Passwords of many US officials, political activists and officials in different countries were stolen.

Ever since then, Google had been working on it’s Two Step Authentication method. This method has enhanced the security of Google account holders.

Google+ ‘Fake Names’ Disaster

A lot of people are very angry at the way Google just suspended their Google+ accounts without any notice. The reason they state for suspending these accounts is usage of fake names or even using non-alphabetic characters in their names. Google not only suspended their Google+ accounts, but all the accounts related to that account including Gmail account, Docs and Bloggers.

Google recently made a lot of it’s customers upset by introducing this new scheme. It’s like Google is enforcing people to give out their real identity even if they don’t want to. The display name or user name of a person should be entirely according to his will.

Gmail’s Multi-Call Feature

It’s always more fun talking to two buddies at the same time than talking to either individually. Google has added the same feature into its Gmail service to make the conversations more enjoyable.

It’s more fun to read email and place a call from the same interface rather than switching back from mail to make a call. With preliminary voice and video calls support, Gmail brought forth the facility of calling land line and mobile phones across USA and Canada last year. Google has now enhanced this facility by adding multi-call support, allowing users to switch between callers using resume and hold features, much akin to call waiting.

It looks like Google is gearing up to launch its own music service, and although it currently looks a bit incomplete, we feel that it has a lot of room to grow.

Now, we covered this topic a bit back in May and we were first heard about it, and we wondered how Google would fare without the backing of record labels. However, according to some leaked files found in the Android Market update, it looks like Google may have swayed some record labels into joining.
