Chrome extensions which make Gmail more powerful
A lot of users rely on Google’s Gmail for official purposes. Reading, organising emails can be a complex and time-taking process. While Gmail comes with its own set of tools to organise emails, it misses out on some key elements. The Google Chrome web browser comes with a bevy of extensions which can enhance the capabilities of Gmail. Here are some of the tools to consider.
Boomerang for Gmail
Boomerang for Gmail brings in the feature of enterprise-level email client. It allows users to schedule mails to be sent at a later time or date, snooze incoming emails and then show them at the top in the Inbox at a scheduled time and also sends reminders if users don’t get a reply to an email. It also comes with an AI (artificial intelligence)-powered assistant which can help users compose a more effective mail.
KeyRocket for Gmail
Keyboard shortcuts can save a lot of time. KeyRocket for Gmail can minimize the time spent on dragging the cursor and clicking on numerous buttons, by offering keyboard shortcuts right on their finger tips. To help users remember the keys and combination of keys, it provides a list of shortcuts. For example, tapping on G with I opens Inbox, tapping on C opens compose mail and by pressing X, users can select and un-select a conversation.
Mailtrack for Gmail
This extension can help users who want to know if an email sent by them using Gmail has been read by the recipient or not. The mails which have been read will show a double tick mark right before the mail. Users can also see the exact time and the number of times the mail was read. Users with busy schedule won’t have to make a call or wait for a response for a confirmation anymore.
SMS from Gmail
If users have to send a text message while working, they don’t have to go to their smartphones anymore. Using SMS from Gmail, they can send and receive a text message on the Gmail account on the PC. Users can sync their messaging app with the extension by installing the MightyText app on their smartphones and signing up with their phone number. This can also provide a backup for messages.
RightTasks for Gmail
If users’ work requires them to check their mails regularly, they can use this extension to merge tasks with mails. So while going through a mail, users can create new task or go through upcoming tasks in a sidebar within Gmail. The sidebar will show on the right side of the page at all times, to keep users regularly posted about all their tasks.
