Google is reportedly testing a set of new inbox features like pinned messages, reminders and category bundles for the new Gmail for Android.

“A screenshot shared by a redditor today claims to show an internal build of the revamped Gmail for Android with the new features,” 9T05Google reported on Saturday.

In September 2018, Google announced the addition of bundles to help users deal with multiple messages at once — an organisational feature that was first introduced in 2014 that brings emails of similar slugs together for users to expand and archive in mass.

“If this screenshot is reliable, Google is working on reminders that users are able to quickly create and schedule along with the ability to only show pinned items in the feed,” the report said.

Google rolled out the big redesign of Gmail last year and added several new features including Smart Reply, email snoozing, follow-up Nudges and hover actions as well as the recent inline attachments and images on Android.

“According to the redditor, ‘there is still plenty of work to be done’. Meanwhile, this screenshot apparently represents only one of the ‘different design iterations’ being worked on, and that it’s still ‘very early,'” the report added. (IANS)

Google search is rolling out a new feature that will let users check their pronunciation of unfamiliar words with the help of machine learning.

With this new feature, a user will be able to speak into their microphone and then Google’s AI will analyze the snippet and compare it against the word’s correct pronunciation.

Then, the user will receive feedback on how each syllable matches Google’s expected pronunciation.

‘For example, if you are practicing how to say “asterisk,” the speech recognition technology analyzes how you said the word and then, it recognizes that the last soundbite was pronounced ‘rict’ instead of ‘hsk,’ Google said in a statement recently.

Presently, it is available on mobile in American English and is coming soon in Spanish.

Google is also improving its word translations and definitions with visual prompts.

“Starting rolling out today, when you look up the translation of a word or its definition, you will start seeing images that give you additional context. This can be useful with words that have multiple meanings like “seal,” or words like “avocado” that aren’t commonly used in all languages or regions,” the company added.
