"To get started, make sure you’ve enabled the new Gmail by going to Settings > “Try the new Gmail.” Next, go to the general tab in your settings, scroll down and enable “experimental access.” If you want to switch back, you can always uncheck the box."

@arunsathiya Thank you:-)
Stowe Boyd
@arunsathiya There is no 'experimental access' in my settings>general.
Daylen
@stoweboyd Are you on the new Gmail?
Chris Owens
@arunsathiya @stoweboyd Same here. Using the new Gmail, too.
Chris Owens
@arunsathiya @stoweboyd Ok! I got it to show up by doing a full page refresh (shift+reload)
Yury Molodtsov
@arunsathiya @stoweboyd @ocell Are you on Gmail or G-Suite? Your administrator might not turn the immediate release option on.
Will Curran
@arunsathiya @stoweboyd @ocell @y_molodtsov I'm having the same issue. I have rapid release enabled on our account and have the new gmail.
Stowe Boyd
@askdaylen Yes, I was. It is accessible today, however.

@arunsathiya Everyone should have experimental access now. It took about 24 hours to rollout globally after the announcement. Thanks for your patience!

Looks great. Especially helpful on mobile

@sharjeelashraf1 thanks! not launched for mobile yet, since the UX is much more difficult there as there is already an autocomplete paradigm on the keyboard to contend with. But of course it's something we'll be looking at. :)

Dope 🚬🚬 This is a great addition to gmail
Ajay Goel
I wonder how this will compare to this recently launched Chrome extension: https://www.producthunt.com/posts/easyemail
Filip Twarowski
@parttimesnob Check us out, Ajay! We seem to be a lot more personalized than Gmail's version, and we're happy to see more innovation in the field. :)

@parttimesnob @filip_twarowski Love EasyMail

Looks like a great timesaver. Will this also be available in Inbox or is it just for gmail?
William Pitcher
@arquason It will probably become more of a timesaver over time. I expect they will provide longer passages as the machine learning improves. It will definitely be great for slow typers. It looks a lot quicker than phone-based auto-complete.

@wmpitcher to me looks like autocomplete while coding. Just keep tabbing as long as it matches what you wanted to say and just steer it in the right direction. Generally its cool and if somebody doesnt like it they can just ignore it.

Great job!! 😊 Will check it out !! Going to love it

Meh. This will just end up influencing what people were planning on writing in the first place. Might sound dramatic, but I'm not interested in having my own voice subtly steered towards the most common phrases and sentence structures. All in the name of 'time savings' 🤷🏼‍♂️

Since when is a new product feature considered a new product in itself?
Paul Lambert
Maker
@cfquaglia It's an interesting question. Features built on huge platforms are often much bigger than entire companies (aka startups) in terms of investment ($ and team size), impact, revenue, etc... If this instead was a startup launched as a plugin, would you consider it a product?
Filip Twarowski
@cfquaglia I would also argue that it's a product, but I may be somewhat biased ;) @prlambert - would love to chat sometime about Smart Compose and EasyEmail!
Carlo F. Quaglia
@prlambert Well what is a product for the PH platform? That is the question. All sorts of things are posted on PH as products, including plugins, product updates and, now, new product features, but a definition of what constitutes a product is given nowhere on the site (I could not find it at least). It should not be a matter of size. I think posts for a product update or a new product feature should be linked to the post of the parent product, since they relate to that and do not constitute a separate product themselves. This would be a useful thing to do because it would add a temporal dimension to the information for a product. What do you think @producthunt and @rrhoover?
Carlo F. Quaglia
@prlambert @filip_twarowski I had missed the launch of EasyMail, but it seems it and Gmail Smart Compose do very similar things: how do they differ?
Filip Twarowski
@cfquaglia Our product is more verticalized since we're focusing on customer support. It seems like the underlying tech is very different, but obviously I can't be 100% certain. We've also been working on some key integrations (e.g. with calendar, search etc.) that Gmail doesn't seem to be providing yet. Hope this helps!
