5 Chrome Extensions to Maximize your Gmail Experience

Extensions to maximize your Gmail experience

Tired of wondering if your email ever reached its destination? You can rest easily now. These Google Chrome extensions will help you become more efficient, more professional and will release you from the stress of not knowing if your e-mail was read or not.

Besides, you can sleep soundly knowing that the email you have to send in the morning will already be on its way by the time you’re taking your shower or brewing your coffee.

1. MailTrack.io

Grading Rate: 4.54 stars | Official Site: Mailtrack.io

Mailtrack-io Google Chrome extensions for Gmail

This is my favorite extension because, it gives me answers to two of the most important questions: “Did Jane read my message?” and “When did Jane read my message?”. The first green check means that your message was sent, while the second one confirms that your e-mail was read.

It’s perfect for sales teams, client management, job hopefuls, project managers, and, of course, internal communication. What is more, the chrome extension will tell you exactly when it was read, how many times it was opened, and which device it was opened on. You don’t have to check the status of your messages constantly because the chrome extension will send email alerts and desktop notifications.

As an extra-bonus you can also find out if you are being ignored deliberately (ouch!).

2. Boomerang

This can be wonderful, especially if you are not a morning person but you want your email to be read sent out before the crack of dawn. It’s also useful for clients or team members who work in different times zones. You can also select messages to be taken out from your inbox in order to make them pop-up again (marked unread or starred), when you actually need them.

A great feature of this chrome extension is that you will receive a reminder alert in case you don’t get a reply to a message. What’s more is that Boomerang helps you schedule follow-up reminders for you clients, which are extremely important in managing a sale.

The extension is cost-free for a limited number of messages per month, but you can choose a subscription plan according to your needs.
