Can Gmail for Android users add recipients directly from the email body?
After finally rolling out its integrated workspace to all G Suite users on both Android and the web, Google is adding a useful new feature to Gmail for Android which will allow users to quickly add recipients directly from the email body.
Often when crafting a message, email senders focus on the body first; and, then add recipients (using the + or @ shortcut) or a subject line. When using this nifty shortcut, which has been long featured in Gmail on the web, Gmail for Android users will see a drop-down menu where the recipients’ names, addresses and avatars will be visible for them to choose.
It’s an excellent feature to have as it takes care of long names and also makes adding contacts less disruptive. Especially, if a sender is in the middle of crafting a message. Ah, if you delete the + or @ shortcut, it will remove the person as a recipient of your email, as well as, erase them from the email body (if you ‘tagged’ one or more contacts in your message).
