The new ability will be available on Gmail and Inbox by Gmail for iOS, Android, and Web for all users within the next three days.
“Gmail users often exchange information like addresses and phone numbers with each other to set up meetings, introduce colleagues and plan events. Precious time can be lost by having to copy and paste this information from an email into other apps and websites, so we wanted to provide a better way to perform these tasks that also saves time,” reads the G Suite blog post.
How It Works
Gmail and Inbox for Android, iOS, and the web will now automatically convert text to interactive hyperlinks whenever it will detect phone numbers, addresses, and email addresses in emails.
By clicking an address link will take you to Google Maps. Clicking an email address will compose a new email, using your default email client. Finally, clicking a phone number in Gmail on your smartphone will start a call request using your default phone app.
