From how many years you are using Gmail? 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 or any other number?Let me ask one question. Are you aware of all the features that Gmail comes with? I bet you are not! Almost all of us use Gmail for sending and receiving mails only and that’s good too. Gmail is like our online post-office where we can receive and send information to other peoples. We never thought of using any other option in Gmail. But my dear friends, Gmail comes with very exciting features which I am going to discuss here in this article.

10 hidden features of Gmail

1. Easy to remove formatting

In most of the Gmail similar platforms if you need to remove the formatted text then first you have to copy-paste the whole text to Notepad window and then again have to copy it to website text area. But it is not the case with Gmail. Here in Gmail if you want to un-format the formatted text then you can easily do it by simply a mouse click. Simply select the text (you want to un-format) and click Remove Formatting option.

2. Space for cloud computing

Cloud Computing is future technology where you don’t need to carry extra drives to store data with you. You will store all your data online and also you can access that data from any part of the world (provided internet connectivity must be there). You can very easily upload and store your data files to Drafts folder in Gmail.

3. IP Tracking

Although you can easily know your IP address using DOS commands. But peoples who don’t know DOS can find their IP using Gmail account. You can get your IP details from Recent Account Activity section in Gmail.

4. Contact List modifications

Gmail automatically creates contact list of users whom you contact usually. Sometimes this list is filled with unwanted addresses. You can very easy restore your contact list to any particular date at any point.

5. Over the air iOs sync

You don’t need to connect your iPhone to sync your Gmail contacts with iPhone. Gmail allows easy over the air sync withiOS which is a great thing for all iPhone users.

6. Mails sorting

Gmail don’t comes with any types of filters. However you can sort your mails in accordance with their size by using a Google Doc script. It will arrange all your messages according to their sizes so that you can easily distinguish between high quality and low quality mails.

7. Image dragging feature

You can very easily attach your images with your mails by simply dragging. Just drag the desired image to text area and it will get attached automatically.

8. Any time accessing

If somehow Gmail goes down for a moment (let’s say for some maintenance work) then you can still access your Gmail account through third party apps like Ebuddy, Thunderbird etc.

9. Mail Snoozing

Just similar to your mobile alarm, you can snooz your mails too. You can set a time period after which a particular mail will again appear as new comment. This can be done with a GApps script (you can search Google about it).

10. Gmail as default mail client

Actually it is not a feature of Gmail rather it is feature of leading web browsers like Chrome and Firefox. In both the browsers you can set Gmail as your default mail client so that you can have easy control on Gmail.

So these are top 10 very less known facts about Gmail. If you know any other trick then please let me know through your comments.
