Gmail Now Lets You Download Attachments via Drag-and-Drop

SMS Text

Google has finally rolled a nifty Gmail feature, something which I assume all of us Gmail users have been waiting for so long – the ability to download Gmail attachments just by drag-and-drop method. It’s a pretty simple feature and yet could be useful for many of us.

You’d know that this feature is activated in your Gmail account if you try to hover on an attachment icon and a tooltip appears telling you that you can either click on it to view the attachment or drag to save it to your desktop.

But there’s a catch – the new feature only works for Google Chrome users. So, if you want to experience this “cool” feature, you should be downloading Google Chrome right now, if you have done so yet.
