Revamping Gmail, Google has added options like easy label adding, moving, muting and snooze emails to the right-click context menu of its emailing platform.

The options would enable users to reply to or forward an email directly from a message while opening multiple emails in multiple new windows, Google wrote in a G Suite blog post on Monday.

The previous right-click menu only gave the users three options to choose from — archive, mark as unread, or delete.

The new additions come with options to search for all emails from the same sender or with the same subjects at once.

The feature — which will be “On” by default — is being made available to users on all G Suite editions, the post said.

Laying more emphasis on headlines and publisher names, Google is redesigning the News tab of its desktop search.

“Over the next couple of weeks, we’re rolling out a redesigned News tab in Search on desktop. The refreshed design makes publisher names more prominent and organises articles more clearly to help you find the news you need,” Google News Initiative announced on Twitter on Friday.

The updated redesign would bring the News tab closer to the dedicated Google News site and display stories in a card format rather than a list, making headlines and publishers appear clearer.

The company is grouping news stories on same topic together to let users looking for broader coverage on a subject distinguish different strands of the case, The Verge reported.
