4 Gmail Labs features you should be using

Michael Ansaldo | May 21, 2015
As powerful as Gmail is, you make it even more productive with add-ons from Gmail Labs. If you're new to Labs, it's the testing ground for Gmail's more experimental features. The successful ones go on to become standard Gmail capabilities--the much-loved Send & Archive button was once a Gmail Lab experiment--but while they're in the Labs, there's always the outside chance they could break, change, or disappear.

When you enable this feature, a new button will appear next to the gear icon in your inbox. From here you can toggle Preview Pane on and off and select either a vertical or horizontal orientation.


If you're processing your emails in bulk at designated times rather than as they arrive — as you should be — you know it's a drag to have to return to your inbox after handling each message to select the next one. Auto-advance saves you time by automatically moving to the next oldest message (if you process your inbox from the top down) or next newest (if you process from bottom up). You can configure your preference on the General tab under Settings.
