Google Rolls Out New Update To Gmail. With A Single Click You Can Now Make Calls And Find Addresses On Google Maps

While I would say September 2017 has indeed been a September to remember (you know with the recent happenings in tech), Google has decided to make some developments to it’s Gmail.


Though this is something that has long been available in Apple’s own Mail app on iOS and Mac devices, it isn’t a high and glorified feature but it comes with something you’d definitely need.

This update is able to convert addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, and contacts to into clickable hyperlinks.

When you click on an address link, it takes you automatically to Google Maps. And likewise, when you click  or tap on an email address, the Gmail “Compose” will open up. For mobile users, tapping on a phone number will initiate the calling process on your phone.

The feature is rolling out now and should be available to everyone within a couple of days.

Here’s what google said

Gmail users often exchange information like addresses and phone numbers with each other to set up meetings, introduce colleagues, and plan events. Precious time can be lost by having to copy and paste this information from an email into other apps and websites, so we wanted to provide a better way to perform these tasks that also saves time. That’s why starting today, Gmail and Inbox by Gmail on Android, iOS, and the web will begin converting text to interactive hyperlinks whenever they detect phone numbers, addresses, and email addresses in emails.
