Gmail adding package tracking feature ahead of holiday shopping season

[ad_1]

The holiday season is approaching and Gmail aims to help U.S. shoppers with new tracking features. 

Google said users can see a “simple” view of packing and tracking delivery information in their inbox. 

For orders with tracking numbers, Gmail will display the delivery status in the inbox view list and in a summary card at the top of individual emails. 

Package tracking will be available across most major U.S. shipping carriers, providing details including estimated arrival data and status.
