Tasks and Text Messaging Come to Gmail

Anina - 360°FashionAnina from 360°Fashion seemed to go a bit off-topic this week at Le Web when she asked one of the Google executives when we could expect to see task or “to do” lists in Gmail. Well, by what I can only hope is coincidence, it would seem that she wasn’t that off-topic after all. Today Gmail Labs is launching task lists and text messaging within Gmail.

With a keyboard shortcut to create tasks from mail (Ctrl+T) this is exactly what I needed. Text messaging is a little less useful in my case because they’re unlimited in my plan and you can only send SMS to US numbers, but I guess there’s plenty of people excited about this too ;)

Go to the Labs tab to activate these if you want to take full advantage of your Gmail account.
