If you're a Gmail user, Google gives you the excuse of forgetting to answer important emails. In addition to the redesigned Gmail webmail interface announced a few weeks ago, Google is now launching a new feature called Nudge, which uses artificial intelligence to remind you to respond to emails.
"When your inbox is flooded with emails, some will inevitably slip through the cracks," Google said in a blog post about the new feature. "Luckily, the new Gmail can help, it will now" nudge "users to reply to emails they missed, and track emails they have not received an answer for."
What is Nudge and how does it work?
Nudge identifies important emails in your inbox and tells you how many days they've been sent. You will be asked if you want to respond so that you can remain productive. In order for the feature to work, Google uses an artificial intelligence engine to scan your emails. In the past, Google scanned your emails to run personalized ads, but this practice ended last June.
Google scans your emails today, but for other purposes. Using A.I. Google can offer features like smart reply, nudge and high priority notifications.
Another way, like Google A.I. Scan your inbox to stop spam and emails. Although you can disable features such as Nudge and Smart Reply, you can not completely disable scanning because Google uses these scans for security to prevent fraudulent emails from reaching you.

9659004] By default, Nudge is enabled for all Gmail and G Suite users. Google will not enable the feature for all users at the same time. Therefore, it may take a few days for Nudge to appear in Gmail. However, this requires that you need to have the new Gmail interface turned on. If you have not already done so, you can follow our guide on getting the new Gmail instantly.
How to recognize a nudge
- Nudges appear next to your email preview on the right. You will see the name of the sender, the subject and a preview of your e-mail in black text. On the right side of the preview of selected emails is the nudge, which is displayed in orange text to grab your attention. Nudges appear at the top of your inbox so you can see them first.
- The Nudge indicates when the email was received and asks if you would like to respond immediately. In one example, Gmail shows that a nudge was received three days ago. By showing when the email was received, you can focus on emails that you have delayed moving longer.
- Nudges will not show up for all emails in your inbox – otherwise the purpose would be overridden. Thanks to the use of A.I. Scan, Gmail will only come across emails that its artificial intelligence algorithms consider important. Like the A.I. Hopefully Gmail will be better off toasting you based on what's really important.
- Nudges are tagged in two different ways. Initially, Google will trigger you based on emails that you may have forgotten to respond to. This should hopefully maintain communication. Second, Nudge can also be used to suggest forwarding e-mails.
An Alternative to Annoying Puffs
Even if Nudging is enabled by default, you can disable the feature by invoking your Gmail settings. Disabling Nudge will not disable Google's A.I. file. Scan your inbox, but you will not see the orange text prompting you to respond to emails that Google considers important.
After logging in, go to the Settings gear top right corner and click Settings . You can enable or disable stubs by toggling the email suggestions to reply to or the emails to forward to field.
