GMail vs Zoho Mail
Last updated: August 11, 2020
Gmail is an email service provided by Google. Users may access Gmail as secure webmail, as well via POP3 or IMAP protocols. Gmail's spam filtering features a community-driven system: when any user marks an email as spam, this provides information to help the system identify similar future messages for all Gmail users. Google also provides GMail alternative for business - G Suite Mail.

It provides best-in-class features exceeding even those of desktop emailing software for business users to communicate effectively while catering to the fine-grained customization and mailbox management needs of IT administrators.

2020. Gmail for G Suite gets deep integrations with Chat, Meet, Rooms and Docs
Google is launching a major update to its G Suite productivity tools today that will see a deep integration of Gmail, Chat, Meet and Rooms on the web and on mobile, as well as other tools like Calendar, Docs, Sheets and Slides. Google is branding this initiative as a “better home for work” and in practice, it means that you’ll not just see deeper integrations between products, like a fill calendaring and file management experience in Gmail, but also the ability to have a video chat open on one side of the window while collaboratively editing a document in real time on the other. For now, these updates are specific to G Suite, though similar to Google’s work around bringing Meet to consumers, the company plans to bring this workspace experience to consumers as well, but what exactly that will look like still remains to be seen.
2020. Google brings Meet to Gmail on mobile
Google integrated to mobile Gmail its Meet video conferencing service. Now, if you use Gmail on Android or iOS and somebody sends you a link to a Meet event, you can join the meeting right from your inbox. So you won’t have to install the dedicated Meet app anymore to join a call from Gmail. Gmail app will get a new Meet tab at the bottom of the screen. This new tab will show you all your upcoming Meet meetings in Google Calendar and will allow you to start a meeting, get a link to share or schedule a meeting in Calendar. If you’re not a Meet power user, then you can turn this tab off, too.
2019. You can now attach emails to other emails in Gmail
The new Gmail feature lets you attach an email or an entire thread to another email. In some situations, this could be more practical than forwarding several separate emails. To do it, you can start a new email and then just drag the subject line from a list of emails and the software will recognize it as a possible attachment. The attached emails will be converted into ".eml" files, and there's no limit on how many emails you can attach.
2019. Zoho Mail adds Offline mode
Zoho Mail users can now read and respond to your emails even when your Internet connection fails you. With the new Offline mode, all your recent email conversations are available offline. Zoho Mail syncs the preferred emails when online so you can read them internet-free at any time. It save your replies in your Outbox to automatically send as soon as you go back online. You can draft replies and create email templates in Offline mode, which is then synced instantly once your internet connection is back. If you're already hooked into our Desktop Lite client, you can reap the benefits of our Offline mode right from your desktop. Enable Offline mode in the client and you're good to go.
2019. Gmail now allows to schedule emails
Google has added to GMail the ability to schedule drafted emails to be sent at specified times in the future. That's the kind of thing you could be forgiven for thinking Gmail already had, but it will likely be a welcome addition nevertheless. Also Google announced some extensions to the popular email ciient's Smart Compose feature that completes sentences for you on occasion. Google is enhancing it so it can supposedly emulate your writerly voice, meaning it can better adapt to informal ways of greeting email recipients now. It will even suggest subject lines now, according to Google. In addition to that, Smart Compose will now work in Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese alongside English and support Gmail for Android.
2019. Gmail makes emails more dynamic with AMP for Email
Google launched AMP for Email, its effort to turn emails from static documents into dynamic, web page-like experiences. AMP for Email is coming to Gmail, but other major email providers like Yahoo Mail, Outlook and Mail.ru will also support AMP emails. The promise of AMP for Email is that it’ll turn basic messages into a surface for actually getting things done. With AMP for Email messages become interactive. That means you’ll be able to RSVP to an event right from the message, fill out a questionnaire, browse through a store’s inventory or respond to a comment — all without leaving your web-based email client. Some of the companies that already support this new format are Booking.com, Despegar, Doodle, Ecwid, Freshworks, Nexxt, OYO Rooms, Pinterest and redBus. The format supports many popular AMP markup features, including carousels, forms and lists. It’s also worth noting that these messages still include standard HTML markup as a fallback for email clients that support AMP.***
2019. Mobile Gmail gets Material Design UI
Gmail on mobile (for iOS and Android) is getting a new look that is in line with the company’s recent Material Design updates to Gmail, Drive, Calendar and Docs and Site. Indeed, the new UI will look familiar to anybody who has ever used the Gmail web app, including that version’s ability to select three different density styles. You’ll also see some new fonts and other visual tweaks. In terms of functionality, the mobile app is also getting a few new features that put it on par with the web version. Like on the desktop, you can now choose between the default view, as well as a comfortable and compact style. Google also notes that the new design makes it a bit easier to switch between accounts. Another nice addition to the mobile app is that the large red phishing and scam warning box from the web version now also appears in the mobile app.
2018. Gmail’s iOS app gets a unified inbox
Many people today have more than one email account, often using one for work, another for personal. While Gmail users on Android have had the option to see multiple inboxes in a single view, iOS users – until now – have had to switch accounts by tapping between them in the app’s navigation. With today’s iOS update, there’s instead the option to use the new “All Inboxes” view from the left-hand side drawer. The option works with both G Suite and non-G Suite accounts, including third-party IMAP accounts, the company notes. Though a unified inbox is a seemingly minor feature, it’s the sort of thing that has driven many Gmail iOS users to third-party apps, since Gmail itself was lacking.
