iOS/Android: Google is rolling out a huge new update for its Gmail web app, and one of the most exciting features is the ability to snooze important emails. If you’re a procrastinator like me, but you prefer checking your email on a smartphone, you’re not out of in luck. The Gmail apps for iOS and Android also recently added a snooze feature.
Snoozing emails is a great tool if there’s something you want to deal with later, but don’t want to lose it to your overflowing inbox. The message simply disappears from your inbox until a specific time. That could be later in the day when you’re not as busy or on Sunday evening when you’re getting ready for the upcoming week.

To snooze any email from your smartphone, start by launching the Gmail app and opening up the message you want to deal with later. Tap on the menu icon (a row of three dots), and you should see a list of options with Snooze at or near the top. Tap on that.
From here, you can pick exactly when you want the email to resurface. Google offers some preset options (tomorrow at 6 p.m., this weekend at 8 a.m., or “Someday”), but you can also schedule the message to appear at a specific date and time. Once you tap on an option, the email vanishes, but if you’re feeling antsy you can always pull up a snoozed email early by searching for it in your inbox.
