Gmail now lets you '@' mention people
2018-05-22T08:23:37Z - Abhimanyu Ghoshal / The Next Web
Gmail got a much-needed visual refresh and some clever new features recently, including Smart Compose and a snooze button for incoming messages. But did you know that the revamped interface also supports user mentions, à la Twitter? For example, @Abhimanyu will bring up a list of people in your contact list with that name, and choosing any of them will add a mailto link labeled with their name. When your recipient clicks that link, it’ll bring up a new compose window so they can write to that contact. If you mention someone with a + sign instead of the @ symbol, that contact will automatically be added as a recipient of your current message.
