Google’s Gmail for desktop got treated to a subtle, yet quite useful refresh today. The update expands the functionality of the quick action buttons in the inbox.
In addition to doing things such as checking on flight confirmation or sending an RSVP via dedicated buttons, users can now view YouTube and Vimeo videos, or Google Docs sent to them via email straight from their inbox. Documents support also includes the ability to open Dropbox folders.
Furthermore, desktop Gmail users can also rate and review Seamless restaurants, as well as modify their Open Table reservations through quick action buttons. Promotions from Google Offers are also supported.
Google will continue expanding the functionality of the quick action buttons in Gmail going forward.
