Google has recently rolled out a slew of new features for Gmail. You can now send direct emails to your Google Plus contacts right from your Gmail and even without knowing their email addresses. Another new feature you might have noticed in your Gmail is the tabbed interface which breaks the Gmail inbox into sections like "Primary","Social", and "Promotions". However, today I want to share with you some interesting tips from Google Guru on how to make the best of your Gmail. These are basically tips that will enable you to save time while using Gmail.

1- Use Flasissue to Create beautiful and engaging emails.
Flashissue for Gmail lets you create emails, build lists and track performance. Brand yourself and your organization without having to leave your Gmail inbox. Send out cool emails and newsletters to mailing lists created from your Google Contacts and track performance.

2-Turn your Gmail inbox into a To-Do List
Learn how to create a to-do-list within your Gmail inbox and take advantage of the many features that comes with it.

3- Undo sent emails
Gmail has a very handy feature that allows you to undo your sent emails. Anytime you sent an email only to realize that you forgot to embed an attachment or you discovered that it was sent to the wrong person, the "Undo Send Tab " feature enables you to take back those emails you don't want to send. To active this service, you need to head over to your Gmail settings and activate it under the Lab section.

4- Organize your inbox using smart filtering and get rid of email overload
SaneBox  is a great web tool to use to use for organizing your emails. It determines the importance of each email based on your past interaction with your Inbox. It moves unimportant messages out of the Inbox into a new folder called SaneLater, and summarizes them in a digest. Now you can focus on what's important without missing anything!

5- Use Gmail Offline to access your Gmail inbox with no internet connection
Gmail Offline  is a Gmail app built to support offline access, allowing mail to be read, responded to, searched and archived without network access. After first start-up, Gmail Offline will automatically synchronize messages and queued actions anytime Chrome is running and an Internet connection is available. More than just an offline app, the streamlined user interface, based off Gmail’s popular tablet interface, provides extremely fast response time with a pure, email focused experience.
