Google has brought a small and meaningful change to its email service- Gmail. This time, Gmail comes with a new package tracking feature. This feature will enable Gmail users to track their packages directly from their inboxes without opening emails from the courier companies.

Users will be able to notice a little truck icon followed by text indicating the order’s status, followed by the delivery date. This label will be updated as the order progresses, with information like “label created,” the arrival date, or the delivery date, Google says.
