Gmail and Inbox Will Now Convert Addresses, Phone Numbers and Contacts Into Clickable Links

Gmail just hyperlinked a LOT of emails

However in the case of addresses, phone numbers, or contacts, that might differ from email service provider to the app that you are using.

With the update, rather than attempting to memorize and re-type addresses in another app, Gmail users can simply click on the address hyperlink and it will open in Google Maps. Similarly, when a user clicks a contact number, the dialer on their mobile device will be activated. Rolling out over the next one to three days, the update will be available on the Web as well as on Google's Android and iOS mobile apps.

Gmail is about to get a lot more intuitive about addresses and phone numbers. For instance, clicking on the phone number will lead you to the phone app so that you can initiate a call right away.

Google has also added other new features to Gmail like Smart Reply, while investing in other machine learning innovations for its other G Suite products.

While the act of copying and pasting items like an address isn't very hard on a desktop, it can be a pain on mobile.

"Precious time can be lost by having to copy and paste this information from an email into other apps and websites, so we wanted to provide a better way to perform these tasks that also saves time", Google wrote in a blog post.

Google has been working on bringing a host of other features to its popular email programs over the past year.

As you can see above, the address has become tappable.

And don't worry if you are not seeing this feature right now on you gmail as Google has said it will take 2-3 days for the complete roll out to happen.
