Gmail is about to get two new settings for turning off data usage, these settings will help Google provide smart features and personalized experience. These new settings will allow you to disable smart features, such as automatic sorting of emails in the main, social, and promotional categories, or smart composing when composing emails, or even disable the summary card that appears above the email. Users can also disable personalization features, such as Google Assistant reminding you to pay next time, and even bundle your itinerary.
Google confirmed on its blog that these two new settings will be enabled in Gmail in the “coming weeks.” These new settings are used to control whether the data in Gmail, Meet and Chat can be used to provide “smart features” in these products and other Google products. Disabling these settings will prevent Google from using your data to provide you with these personal experiences. You can enable/disable these options in Gmail settings at any time.
If you choose not to allow Gmail, chat, and meeting smart features to use data, then you will not automatically categorize emails into “promotions”, “social” and “primary” inboxes, then you will not be able to use smart When writing an email, you also won’t see a summary card for shopping, travel reservations and package tracking, nor will you create any calendar events from the dates and other details in the email.
Similarly, if you choose not to use Gmail, chat and party data to personalize other Google products, Google Assistant will not be able to provide you with bill reminders, Google Maps will not provide restaurant reservations, and Google Pay will not show any membership cards and tickets.
Google explains in its blog: “Smart functions rely on your data to save time and provide a more useful experience. We want you to use them because you will find the value of using them, not because they are there.” Microsoft claims that these new settings will be enabled for individual Gmail users and even Google Workspace administrators.
