Revamping Gmail, Google has added options like easy label adding, moving, muting and snooze emails to the right-click context menu of its emailing platform. The options would enable users to reply to or forward an email directly from a message while opening multiple emails in multiple new windows, Google wrote in a G Suite blog post on Monday.

The previous right-click menu only gave the users three options to choose from — archive, mark as unread, or delete.
The new additions come with options to search for all emails from the same sender or with the same subjects at once.  The feature — which will be “On” by default — is being made available to users on all G Suite editions, the post said. Google has already started rolling out the update to G Suite users with Rapid Release domains.

For the other users, the feature’s scheduled release is on February 22. Besides, IANS also reported that Google is refocusing its Android-based platform for smart devices — Android Things — only on smart speakers and smart display categories. “We are refocusing Android Things as a platform for original equipment manufacturers (OEM) partners to build devices in those categories moving forward,” Dave Smith, Developer Advocate for Internet of Things (IoT), Google, wrote in a blog-post on Tuesday.
