The next feature, which is email scheduling, will be receiving the majority of the attention here. The new feature on Gmail will allow its users to schedule their email to be sent later in time. This can be done via Send button, which now gets a drop down menu that will allow the users to schedule an email. Previously, a third party app was needed to schedule an email. But, Google has brought this feature to Gmail itself. The company has positioned the email scheduling feature as digital wellness tool.
