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 redesign started off as an optional feature, but Google made it clear that all users would eventually be migrated over to this new redesign. The latest addition is changes to the Gmail right-click menu, which now brings more useful options to the mailbox.
The new 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 new additions come with options to search for all emails from the same sender or with the same subjects at once.
Currently, users are limited to only a handful of options such as Archive, Delete, and Mark as Unread, when right-clicking on an email. With the new update to Gmail for desktop, users can do a lot more, such as reply, forward, snooze, and mute, as well as search for previous emails from the same sender or with the same subject. Placing these options within easy reach takes out a few extra steps from the daily workflow of a large number of users, making Gmail much more convenient to use.
This new update for Gmail for desktop is currently rolling out to G Suite users. While Google has not specifically mentioned when these features will roll out to general users, we predict it to happen in the coming weeks, as has been the norm.
Over the course of the next couple of weeks, all G Suite users will have access to the feature, according to a blog post by Google. The feature is likely to have fully rolled out to all users by February 25. There is no admin action necessary to activate the feature, which will be on by default. End users can use the feature by simply right clicking on a conversation or mail to get the new options.
