Gmail's New Quick Action Buttons Help You Complete Tasks on the Go

12:21 PM

Gmail unveiled what it calls "quick action" buttons on Wednesday, helping users respond to certain types of emails without ever having to open them.

In a blog post, Google product manager Shalini Agarwal says the buttons are meant to "tackle your digital to-dos as quickly as possible."

They show up next to specific messages in your inbox that can be addressed with little effort — for example, RSVPing to a party invitation or rating a restaurant.

What's more, Gmail is making it easier for travelers to quickly find essential information about their flights. Rather than having to scroll through long confirmation emails, basic flight info — including connection time and whether a plane is on-schedule — is displayed at the top of the inbox.

Agarwal says Gmail's quick-action buttons will roll out "over the next few weeks," and that it plans to add more actions in the future.
