Gmail just got a lot better for smartphone users

April 15th, 2014 at 4:08 PM
Gmail Insert Photo Feature

Google on Tuesday announced that Gmail is getting a brand new feature that should definitely be appreciated by photographers who mainly use their smartphones to take pictures. Google’s email app will now let users insert their images faster in their emails when using the desktop version of Gmail, as long as their phones are configured to automatically back up photos on Google+.

“Unless you’re a budding Ansel Adams, odds are you take most of your photos using your phone,” Google wrote on the Gmail blog. “And whether it’s photos of your hiking trip or a night out, sending photos to friends and family just got easier. Starting today, you can save time and insert your Auto Backup photos from your phone into Gmail messages on the web using the new Insert Photo button.”

In addition to sharing single images, users will be able to share full albums, and even resize images when composing messages by dragging on any corner of the photo.

The new feature will be rolling out starting today, although users will have to enable Auto Backup on their Google+ profiles before actually being able to use it.

A new “Insert Photo” menu option will soon be available to Gmail users on the desktop version of the app, as shown in the following image.
