Gmail now converts addresses, numbers, emails to clickable links
20 September, 2017, 00:45 | Author: Cecelia Webb
Now Google is making life easier for Gmail and Inbox users, both through the app and through the web, by converting addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers into interactive hyperlinks that should lead to actionable apps.
For example, if a user clicks on a link to a physical address, Google Maps will be opened.
Too much time is consumed in copy and pasting the information from an email into other apps and websites, and therefore, the clickable hyperlinks are a step toward saving time and increasing efficiency, the post added. Google doesn't specify what the phone number will do on a desktop-possibly launch the Hangouts dialer?
The latest update to Gmail and Inbox will now come with tappable phone numbers and addresses. So now if someone sends you an address, you can click/tap on it and it will take you to the Google Map.
Gmail makes an improvement to its messaging application on iOS and Android. Similarly the phone numbers will become clickable and tapping on them will open the number in the handset's dial pad. We can only assume that this will also link to other maps apps if the user has another map app set as their default - but we'll see. What do you think about the new feature?
