As they said in the blog post that this feature will be rolled out to all gmail users across the globe irrespective from where or which country you use gmail, we got this feature enabled some minutes ago in our gmail account and now in this post we will tell you how to enable or disable the new gmail compose feature and how to use it effectively.

How To Enable New Gmail Compose Feature

For this you just need to click the compose button or click any email id to compose a message and once you do this, you will see a link at the top center of the page with a link which allows you to try the new gmail compose feature.

Try new gmail compose

In case you don’t see this feature, either click on some email id in gmail to compose a new email, if you still don’t get the feature message to try, then you should wait and after some time it will automatically be rolled out to your account.

Once the new gmail compose feature is enabled, you will see a small pop up message window when ever you compose a new message, which allows you to write an email message within a small window and the new change you will see is that when you write a email message, you will be able to see all the emails arrived in your inbox.

You’ll also see some differences when replying to or forwarding messages. Most of the changes are similar to those that you’ll see when composing a brand new message.

One more thing to note, how to reach the formatting options – as it has been now located at the bottom of the new compose and reply box.

Formatting Bar moves to bottom in reply

Here are a few additional changes:

  • Recipients: To change who your message should be sent to, click into the recipient field when you’re replying.
  • Type of response: Click the arrow next to the recipient’s name to choose whether your message is a reply, reply all, or forward.
  • Subject: To change the subject of your message, click the arrow next to the recipient’s name and click “Start separate conversation.”
  • Respond inline: If you want to see the previous message within your reply, scroll down until you see the “Show trimmed content” icon and click it.


Both of the new compose and reply feature are designed on the lines of simplicity, so there are simplistic in nature providing the important feature set with simple UI, which many users will like but some options like formatting have become difficult to access as they have been located at the bottom of the reply box rather than being on the top.

Yes, youtube team has silently added a new features across the youtube accounts for all the partners and youtube users who run a channel of their own, with this new feature which is called youtube InVideo Programming which actually allows you to add a watermark instantly across all the videos uploaded under youtube channel and once you enable this it will be automatically added to all new videos you upload under youtube channel.

You can easily locate this feature in the left side bar on the channel settings page, once you are logged in to your youtube channel with its user account.

In Video Programming Youtube

Once you click this feature, you will see the see two options

Feature Your Youtube Channel

It will by default put your youtube channel profile image, it will drive viewership to a specific video and reinforce channel branding using InVideo Programming across all your videos.

Feature Your Channel Youtube

It will show the youtube channel profile image on all your videos by default but you can also add a custom image of 800×800 pixels highest and max 1 Mb of size

Promote Channel Subcribe Link

You can select this image to appear in entire video or end or beginning for a set time interval, this image will be directly linked to your subscribe page, so it should help you get more subscribers this way.

Our Conclusion

However when we tested this feature, we found that the channel image looks quite small and does not make that much impact on viewers watching, but if there is some option provided to make this youtube channel image bigger this will make more sense, right now there is no option in youtube to make this happen, it should come out in near future.

Bonus Tip

Another feature is which is also introduced in In Video Programming

Feature One Youtube Video Across All Videos

It helps you promote your video across all the youtube videos on your channel.

Feature A Video On Your Channel

Make sure that the video you select here should be a public video from your channel. You may be able to add a any public video as well, which might not be from your channel but we haven’t tried it

Featured Video

Once you select a video you can set that video thumbnail on all others videos on your channel as you can see in the image below.

Featured Video On All Videos

Please Note: For both of these new feature, you can adjust the position, display time and duration for which the featured video or featured subscribed link


We like both of these new features rolled out for youtube partners and youtube video up loaders but both of these features are quite at basic level, we hope to see more customizations options around these features specially the size of featured channel image
