Google Announces Support For Gmail




Conversion Of Numbers And Titles Into Interactive Links

Google today announced the launch of a new feature of the email service that allows the transfer of phone numbers, addresses and contacts to clickable links.

“Users of Gmail often share information such as addresses and phone numbers with each other to call for a meeting, to introduce colleagues, and to plan for an event,” the company said in a blog post. “The precious time can be lost in copying and pasting this information from email to other applications and websites.”

From the date of the publication, Gmail and its Inbox on Android, iOS and the Web will start converting texts into interactive links when you recognize phone numbers, addresses and e-mail addresses in emails.

Google pointed out that clicking on an address link within the email would open it through Google Maps. Similarly, clicking a phone number will open it by applying the call, and clicking on an email address will open an email creation window.

Users believe that Google has been late in supporting this feature, which is already available for phone numbers within the Android and iOS operating system.

Gemel is one of the most widely used e-mail services around the world. Statistics show that it accounts for 20% of the market with about 1.2 billion active users.
