So what we talked about earlier regarding Google testing new feature for Gmail, which include phone call and the ability to login via multiple account sign-in. Today, the email service added support for this to let multiple account holders access each.

Keep evolving if you are to stay on top of the line. That is what I think and perhaps it comes from Google and its powerful web browser, Chrome. The browser has just got a latest experimental build titled the Chrome Canary and it is in every a threat to users. What makes its threatening or risky? Well Google plans to introduce this build with a bid that changes inducted will be implemented without any user verification. Which means you are the lab monkey testing out changes first up.
Before I head on further, know the risks:
Looks like there are a few updates ready to be introduced by Google for Gmail. According to the Google Systems blog, the internal build for Google’s email service has quite a lot of new features that have been spotted. Those that have already been in tests for quite some time now.
Once these changes are introduced, users will be able to see links to Mail, Contacts and Tasks just below the logo of Gmail along side a button taking place of the text link for composing an email message. Other notable changes include:
Looks as if there is a greater influence of Bing coming Google’s way as the search engine pushes its images.google.com to a more visual mode. The Image Search Engine has shed off quite some weight in this experimental redesign and from the looks of it, it appears pleasant. Does that mean I was being arrogant to appreciate Microsoft’s Bing? Not exactly, but Google was simply getting too untidy with image results.
Google appears to be rooting out accounts for YouTube and integrating with Google accounts system. We are already aware that new accounts on YouTube are created by using the cross site access functionality to use the online video sharing service. Most of the YouTube users from the pre-Google purchase have YouTube accounts that are not connected to Google, the idea to have one access for everything is a clever idea for sure.
Google is getting some kicking in China and Pakistan by the authorities. I had been experiencing a block on certain Google Search Suggestions on random sites by the PTA and I kept ignoring this until I came across news from Cnet. While it’ about China extending its impenetrable firewall further.
There must be a lot of you out there who get Microsoft Word files or documents as attachments to your Gmail account. What’s the worst part about it? Opening it, or saving it to a destination and then reading it! Worry no more as Gmail now lets you view these attachments right in the browser.
Google sure has taken all the time it could before expanding its Google Voice service beyond specific regions and users to everyone. There have been controversies of course, with Apple playing it ugly by blocking the Google Voice App for the iPhone and the latest reports of Google being sued for patent violations by Frontier Corporations. This isn’t new for Google and it wont stop it from finally rolling the service out for the masses.
Google has been up and about with its Voice service, introducing its mobile web application, its voice mail player integrated with Gmail. There were of course hiccups with the service as many users reported of the voice calls dropping every few seconds but there have been reasonable improvements over time as promised with the new features included.
There is nothing better than having a preview of what or where the link takes you to, given that so many of us use Google Maps to point out locations in our emails. Google has kept that in mind and introduced Google Maps preview in both its Gmail and the Google Buzz. Users will now be able to be able have a preview of the map links in the services.
The service is currently available to residents of the United States and will soon be followed by expanding the same Internationally, perhaps Pakistan too. The feature can be easily enabled by going to you Gmail Labs and then the Settings. From there you can enable it by selecting Google Maps Review. With this done you will be able to preview the map right in your email.
