Addresses, phone numbers, and contacts now converted to links in Gmail to save users time

News | 20.09.2017

Starting on September 18, Gmail and Inbox by Gmail on Android, iOS, and the web will begin converting text to interactive hyperlinks whenever they detect phone numbers, addresses, and email addresses in emails.


How it works

Clicking an address link will take the user to Google Maps. Clicking an email address will compose a new email, using the user’s default email client.

Finally, when using a mobile device, clicking a phone number will start a call request using the default phone app.
