Experiments heading was the latest update in setting menu of Gmail with which users got two new options. The first provided Gmail to catalogue entire messages for better local search, whereas other one enables drag-drop of contact chips in between TO, BCC & CC address fields.However, many complain were registered with this update as it took longer time for the access to the multitasking features and even the animation were not liked by the users.
