Nudges in Gmail for Android are now Live

After debuting on the new Gmail experience on the web, nudges has landed in Gmail for Android too.  The feature gives you suggested reminders to follow up on emails or to reply to emails that are in your Gmail inbox.  The feature is a cloud-side update so as long as you are running the latest build of Gmail on your Android phone, you should see the feature.

Nudges in Gmail uses AI to survey your inbox and give you gentle reminders (aka nudges) to reply to an email or to follow up on an email.  The idea is to help you with a reminder so you don’t have something you need to follow up on slip through the cracks.

Setting up of the feature is straightforward given that it is enabled by default.  However, if you want to change or disable the behavior, open up Gmail and go to the Settings menu.  Then select your Gmail account and scroll down to the nudges section.
