Google Labs is a testing ground which allows you to try out experimental features that aren't quite ready to be made into regular features. Google described Labs as "a playground where our more adventurous users can play around with prototypes of some of our wild and crazy ideas and offer feedback directly to the engineers who developed them." They may change, break or disappear at any time; or some might work so well that they become integrated as regular features. Since Labs are tucked away in your mail settings, most Gmail users don't even know that Google Labs exists. If you're familiar with Google Labs, you know exactly how useful these tools are for real estate marketing. Take a look at six of our favorite Google Labs that will make your life a lot easier:
Undo send: Have you ever sent an email, only to realize that you made an error, or completely forgot a section of info? The Undo Send feature allows you to "unsend" an email up to 30 seconds after you've hit "send."
SMS in chat: Send and receive text messages through Google Chat. Just type in any US phone number in Google Chat, and save the number to your contacts. The Google Chat text messages will always show up on the receiver's phone as a "406" area code. Messages from the same person will always come from the same number, so you can bookmark your friends or clients Google Chat number in your phone.
