You might notice that the ‘Compose’ screen on Gmail looks somewhat different today.

 

According to an article published on Google’s official Gmail blog, the newly introduced ‘Compose’ screen was designed to be faster and easier to use compared to the old interface which ‘covers’ the entire inbox. In a nutshell, hitting the ‘Compose’ button would fire up a pop-up window at the bottom right corner of your screen, much like chat screens on Google Talk, albeit in a larger window.

 

This makes sense, especially if you need to refer to another email in the midst of composing a new one. Considering that many of us have to save the draft message, open up the old email, and then reopen the draft message in order to complete the email, the new ‘Compose’ layout does help speed up the process in this aspect.

 

Besides facilitating easy references, the new ‘Compose’ also makes it easy for you to keep an eye on incoming emails. Again, much like chat screens embedded in Gmail, users can minimize the ‘Compose’ window (and even multiple windows) to work on them later. According to Google’s blog post, it’s also easier to insert inline images with the reworked ‘Compose’ window.

 

Furthermore, you’ll now see profile pictures of your contacts as you’re adding recipients to an email message. They’ll appear in the suggested lists of recipients as part of Google’s autocomplete feature. In addition, users can drag-and-drop recipient chips between the “To”, “Cc”, and “Bcc” address fields, instead of having to copy and paste them.

 

Inline replies will also feature a similar layout as the new ‘Compose’ screen. According to Google,”replies take up much less vertical height, intelligently expand to fit your content, and always keep the recipients and other controls in view no matter how long your message gets”.

Microsoft’s latest move to counter the rising popularity of Gmail among Internet users comes in the form of a preview of its new web service, Outlook.com which will eventually replace Hotmail. Here’s a quick rundown of its new features:

 


Cleaner, More Streamlined User Interface

Users will see a fresh, clean interface where there is 60% fewer pixels and 30% more message visibility in their inboxes. Microsoft also makes it a point to do away with display ads or large search boxes that take up unnecessary space. Outlook.com uses Exchange ActiveSync, which powers your mail, calendar, and people experience on the smartphone, tablet and the new Outlook 2013 preview.

 

Integration with Social Networks

Recognizing the increasing importance of social networks as tools for people to share and communicate, Microsoft is the first to provide an email service that is connected to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google, and soon Skype, to make calls from inside Outlook.com. This means that your contact list is always up-to-date with photos of your friends, status updates and tweets. Outlook.com also gives you the power to control your experience – what you share, the networks you connect to, and your personal information.

 

Smarter and More Powerful Inbox

Outlook.com will automatically sort out your messages from contacts, newsletters, shipping updates and social updates. The Sweep feature enables the user to move, delete, and set up rules in a few, simple clicks so that you can navigate faster around the interface.

Office Web Apps is included as a free add-on, which allows you to to view and edit Office documents from within the email service itself. Outlook.com is also integrated with Microsoft’s SkyDrive, making it convenient to send files from the cloud storage service without worrying about attachment limits.

 

Emphasis on Privacy and User Control 

Microsoft assures you that it will not scan your email content or attachments, and sell these information to third parties. Ads will not be shown in personal conversations as well. You are free to customize your inbox according to your preferences by creating your own folders, categories and rules. Outlook.com provides virtually unlimited storage with industry-leading spam protection and world class security.


Chris Jones, Microsoft’s corporate vice president of Windows Live said Outlook.com, which builds off the power of the Outlook people have long used on their PCs and Macs, has a fresh, clean user interface that gets the clutter out of inboxes and takes away display ads and large search boxes, and works well with smartphones, tablets, and the new Outlook 2013 Preview.

 

Outlook.com, Microsoft’s new cloud mail service, has a fresh and intuitive design, enriches conversations by connecting to Facebook and Twitter, and provides a smart inbox with the power of Office and SkyDrive.

 

Photo emails are brought to life with slideshows that launch directly out of Outlook.com with one click.

 

Skype will be coming to Outlook.com soon, so people can video call Skype or Outlook friends, even if neither have the Skype client installed.

 

For an up-to-date address book, the latest contact info that friends share on Facebook and LinkedIn is integrated into Outlook.com.

 

Outlook.com offers a clean, easy way to edit documents from the Inbox. In this example, a family’s budget is shown in Excel.

 

Outlook.com offers the ability to open, edit and share Word, Excel and PowerPoint files from anywhere with full fidelity.

 

From anywhere on Outlook.com, customers like Matt Millmann (shown here) can chat with friends who are using Facebook Chat or Outlook.
