Google has been launching a major Gmail redesign since April, after many years. Along with the new graphical interface, the new Gmail comes with new features, such as nudge.
More than 1,4 billions of accounts now have access to new look of Gmail. If you have not been notified that you have tried it or if you have received and ignored it, you can upgrade your Gmail by clicking on the gear icon in the upper right corner of the screen and selecting "Try the new Gmail". Do not worry if you do not like it, you can go back to the old layout at any time.
Upgrading it will allow you to access a range of new features for both desktop and mobile. One of these new features is the jog (Nudge for those who have it in English). But what is the jolt? How do you turn it on and how do you turn it off?
What is jogging?
Jogging is a productivity tool that targets both individuals and businesses. This feature has two purposes:
1. It can remind you to respond to important emails.
2. It can remind you to follow emails that you have sent and to which you have not received an answer.
Although it sounds good, some users may find it annoying, especially if they keep their inbox with few emails.
How to enable and disable the Shake feature in Gmail
The jog is available in the web app as well as the corresponding app for Android devices. To disable the jogging feature in the web application, follow these instructions:
1. Open Gmail from the Browser of your choice.
2. Be sure to upgrade your new Gmail.
3. Click the gear icon in the top right corner.
4. In the popup menu, select "Settings".
5. Open the "General" tab.
6. Scroll down to the "Shakes" item.
7. Check or uncheck the checkbox next to the two options available to you.
8. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click "Save Changes."
Your changes will apply from the next time you return to your inbox.
