As Google pulls the plug on popular 'Inbox by Gmail' app, main Gmail application has been updated with a slew of new smart features.

Celebrating 15th anniversary of the email service, Google said that Gmail's smart compose will include more languages - panish, French, Italian and Portuguese. Also, the language support will be now available on Android devices. So far, it had been exclusive to Pixel 3 phones. iPhone and iPad users will also receive the latest feature.

"Smart Compose is also getting, well, smarter. It will personalize suggestions for you, so if you prefer saying "Ahoy," or "Ello, mate" in your greetings, Smart Compose will suggest just that. It can also suggest a subject line based on the email you've written," said the company in a blog post.

Gmail now also allows users to schedule email. To schedule email, draft a message on the application. Then click on the three dots menu and select "Schedule Send." Gmail gives you options such as schedule an email to "tomorrow morning", "tomorrow afternoon" and even "pick date and time" of your choice.
