GMAIL- Will Now Convert Addresses, Numbers And More Into Hyperlinks On Android, iOS And The Web
Google stated that their email service will start converting text into hyperlinks. All the text, especially phone numbers, email addresses, and addresses will be converted into links within the email.
Many of Gmail users exchange information such as phone numbers and addresses with each other within the app to set up meetings, plan events, and introduce colleagues. These users have to make efforts by copying the required information and saving it into other apps or website but now Gmail mentioned that “the company wanted to provide a better way to perform these tasks that also saves time”.
This means that from now onwards “Gmail and Inbox by Gmail on Android, iOS, and the web will begin converting text to interactive hyperlinks whenever they detect phone numbers, addresses, and email addresses in emails.”
How will this feature work?
Google mentioned in its official blog that “Clicking an address link will take the user to Google Maps. Clicking an email address will compose a new email, using the user’s default email client. Finally, when using a mobile device, clicking a phone number will start a call request using the default phone app.”
The new update for the Gmail app supporting the text conversion feature has already rolled out. In case you are still not seeing this feature, move into the Google Play Store and check whether your Gmail app is updated or not.
