The new strikethrough button is located on the right-hand side of the menu. It has been introduced because users want a quick way to express a change in thought in email.
"Strikethrough is a visual cue that something has been completed or can be used as an edit suggestion. We've heard from you that this functionality is critical to quickly and efficiently write emails, especially when you want to visually indicate a change in language," Google explains on its G Suite updates blog.
Gmail users will also be able to download email as .EML files from the web. EML files are recognized by email clients like Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. Google says it will let users view Gmail content along with other attachments within these clients. Users can also add downloaded email as attachments in emails.
Users can download messages as .EML files from the three-dot menu by clicking 'Download message' at the bottom. Previously this could done by clicking 'Show original' and downloading it as an .EML file, but took a few more steps.
The new features are rolling out over the next few days to all Gmail users on the web and to G Suite users.
