A very basic email service that had up to 1GB data storage available, Gmail was seen as the next best service that Google had to offer after being the largest search engine.

"We may have launched Gmail on April Fools’ Day, but the last 15 years have been no joke. And we’re looking forward to what’s to come," states the blog post.

When in early 2000, blocking email and marking spam was huge, Gmail would mark emails inappropriate. Enhancing the spam filtering with the help of artificial intelligence, nearly 10 million emails per minute are marked spam.

Gmail has evolved over the past 15 years and as it continues to strive forward, the company has made rather interesting announcements. Soon, there will be a smart compose option for Gmail users. The AI-powered feature will help in writing emails quicker than ever before. And not only will this feature be in English but other languages such as Spanish, Italian, French and Portuguese.

“Smart Compose is also getting, well, smarter. It will personalise suggestions for you, so if you prefer saying “Ahoy," or “Ello, mate” in your greetings, Smart Compose will suggest just that. It can also suggest a subject line based on the email you’ve written,” states the blog post.

Other than this, Gmail will let its users schedule emails in advance which will help in not intruding someone’s ‘off time’ from work and sends the email in another time zones working hours.

And the most asked for feature is without having to leave your inbox, you can browse within Gmail. You now don’t have to open a new tab or another app for that matter ‘to get things done.’

These features will soon be available in both Android and iOS devices.
