Gmail just hyperlinked a LOT of emails

Obviously, clicking an email address assumes you want to email that person and so it will lead to a compose new email window in your device's default email client.

Google has introduced a lot of smart features into Gmail such as Smart Reply for Android and iOS users. But it is soon to be over: now, the addresses (electronic and postal) and phone numbers become clickable links.

The update to Gmail and Inbox will take effect in Gmail and Inbox on Android, iOS, and the web over the next three days. Selecting a phone number, meanwhile, will dial a call in Hangouts or your default phone app if you're on mobile. So from now onwards if somebody emails you with an address, you no longer need to copy-paste it on Maps after a view on Inbox or Gmail. Google has finally kicked-off for an update, which provides a form of an app of emails with a capability to convert the email addresses, contact numbers, and addresses into a form of hyperlinks. When you tap the address, you are brought to a view of the address within Google Maps!

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.

Gmail makes an improvement to its messaging application on iOS and Android.

By clicking on an address link, a user will automatically be taken to Google Maps to see the exact location and access directions. If your file is greater than 25MB, Gmail adds a Google Drive link in the email instead of including it as an attachment.

This new feature will help users to take actions rapidly while surfing through mail.
