Gmail can now track shipments: here’s how to activate the feature


Following Google’s announcement in November that Gmail would soon display package and delivery tracking information immediately in the inbox, indications of the launch of this crucial feature are now appearing. It is now possible to manually switch it on in the Gmail settings if it is not currently active, but just for Android and iOS right now.

By looking directly below an email on a package’s delivery. We will be able to see when a delivery is arriving thanks to it. In fact, the arrival directions appear alongside an indicator resembling a truck.

Gmail: shipments tracking is now available on Android and iOS

The information tab that shows when you open a message in Gmail has also been updated, and it is now distinguished by the same dynamic color as the background. A preview of the image, the recipient’s name. And the delivery date will all be visible in the upper left corner. A specific order number may also appear in some circumstances, with the option to quickly copy and paste it. An order timeline with links to “Order Details” and “Track Package” also appears.

Gizchina News of the week

Google promised that this feature would be accessible on Android and iOS in the coming weeks. When it was first revealed in early November. But ultimately we had to wait a few months.

Anyone who has not yet been informed via a specific tab added to the emails can enable the feature on Android. By going to the Gmail settings and selecting their email account. From there, they can choose General > Parcel tracking. You must access the settings app on iOS and scroll to the bottom to find the data privacy area.

Those who like the outdated conventional view can, of course, deactivate everything using the same link. It appears that it will also be accessible via Gmail’s web interface in the upcoming months.
