Gmail has announced a new feature that allows you to attach an email. Or a complete email thread to a new email. Although it may sound a bit weird, it really isn’t that much.
In a blog post, Google explains that in some situations this may be more practical than forwarding several emails separately. “Sending emails as attachments allows you to write a summary message to your recipients, and add a set of support emails that recipients can directly open in their email client,” explains Google.
To do so, simply start writing a new email and drag the title of the emails to be added as attachments. Emails will be converted to “.eml” files and there is no limit on the number of emails you can attach.
The Gmail functionality will progressively reach users throughout the month of December. If you want to check if you have it available, create a new email and click on the three-point menu. Where you will find the option «forward as attachment».
Gmail dynamic emails
It is worth to mention that Gmail has recently received an update on Android and iOS with an interesting new feature which is the support for dynamic emails. But what exactly does a dynamic email offer and why is it better than a traditional one? The main difference lies in the possibility of inserting interactive contents that follow the rules of the classic AMP pages. So it will be possible to display emails in which all the elements allow to perform actions such as recording an event. Alongside with replying to a comment and managing a subscription and much more. In fact, Gmail has long supported dynamic emails within its web client. But now this will also be possible on Android and iOS devices.
Among the other unique features of dynamic emails we point out the possibility of updating the content present within them . For example, an email containing the price of a particular product could automatically update to show the most recent one. Thus allowing the user to buy it directly from the message, without having to go to the site.
