Gmail email template and multi-send coming to more Workspace editions

Google is bringing Gmail’s email template layouts and multi-send capabilities to more Workspace users, just as they did with appointment scheduling in Calendar earlier this year.

These two features were first introduced for Google Workspace Individual customers, and are meant to simplify sending “professional-looking emails to large audiences.” Possible use cases for the features – available on Gmail for web – include “announcements, newsletters, and other mass-email scenarios.” 

The changes start with email templates and layouts that can include images, text elements, and buttons, as well as customization for “your own color schemes, logos, images, footer text, and links.”
