GMail Gets RSS Clips

A few days after Yahoo announced its much vaunted Mail + RSS Reader, Google has just turned on a feature that allows you to read your favorite RSS feeds inside of GMail Jared Jacobs from GMail team blogs on the official Google blog.

Over the past few months, I’ve been working on Gmail Clips, a new feature that can help mix things up a bit. Starting this week, you can see headlines from your favorite blogs and news sites right above your Inbox. Gmail tips and relevant text ads appear from time to time as well.

I am trying to add feeds, but having no luck in searching for topics etc. If you are successful, let me know. Otherwise, we might have to catalog this as yet another premature launch from Google!

Meanwhile, the feature creep, and similarities between GYM are too much for you, then read Bubble Generation’s latest rant about Yahoo. Oh they are not alone Umair. After all Tis a Season To Copy! Anyway what is Yahoo? I asked that question a couple of days ago?

Plus, Paul K thinks that GMail is getting smarter.…”where the service automatically detects structured information in emails, like FedEx/UPS/etc tracking numbers, or addresses, and then offers to track the package, or map the address, respectively. It’s about time.”
