Gmail’s dynamic email that became generally available last July, has now been extended to mobile—Android and iOS. The feature was first launched in March, but did not immediately become available apparently because some tests were still being carried out at the time. At the time, it was only available to paying G Suite customers—that soon change as Google announced its general availability in July.

Dynamic email or accelerated mobile pages [AMP] allows you to interact with calendar invites, respond to questionnaires, and browse catalogs right from the message in your inbox instead of clicking links that open in a browser. The mobile version, which became available to users on Thursday, will become generally available over the next two weeks, 9to5google reports.

AMP will, however, only work if the company that sent you an email supports the format. What that means is that you won’t have the full benefit of the feature since only a handful of partners are currently enlisted. A few of the partners that have signed up to dynamic emails on Gmail include, Booking.com, Despegar, Doodle, Ecwid, Freshworks, Nexxt, OYO Rooms, Pinterest, and redBus.

Please note that you must have the “display external images” setting turned on in order to have dynamic emails displayed on your emails. You can, however, turn off the feature if you don’t want to continue seeing it.

The ability to schedule your email was officially made available to all users on desktop last April. The feature, which was earlier announced by the world’s largest email service, has now been officially rolled out to all users. That means you can compose an email and schedule it to be sent at a later date—and it is so easy and no rocket science.

Let’s just say you have an email that is required to be sent at a particular date; and due to your tight work schedule, you might not be able to remember when that time comes. All you have to do is to compose the mail, and schedule it to be sent at the exact date and time. Like I said, it is so easy and no rocket science.

Compose an email, click the arrow next to the send button on desktop, and choose from the different options that follow, which allow you to set data and time to send the email—it is that simple. Once done, you can click the “schedule” button and wait for the email to be sent automatically on the set date.
