How to Snooze Email in Gmail

Important emails have a way of coming in times when you really can’t read, or you are already preoccupied with something else. And if you swipe it away thinking you will check it out later, there is a chance that you will end up forgetting about it altogether. Google understands that inconvenience and has included a snooze feature in Gmail.

The snooze feature in Gmail works just like the snooze feature in our alarms. It sends the Email away, and then depending on the time you set while selecting to snooze, the Email will pop-up again. It is a convenient feature for people who often forget the little things of the day. So how do you snooze your emails in Gmail? That is what we will see here in this article.
