Some Gmail Labs services set to become regular Gmail features!

Google has announced that some of the enhancements currently available through Gmail Labs would now become regular offerings of the service.

The company is also retiring some of the less used features available through Labs.

Gmail Labs enabled Google to offer new features through an opt-in setting for people who were willing to experiment with them.

Here are the six Labs feature which would now become regular offering on Gmail:

Search Autocomplete
Go To Label
Forgotten Attachment Detector
YouTube Previews
Custom Label Colors
Vacation Dates

Features that are being removed from Gmail Labs:

Muzzle
Fixed Width Font
Email Addict
Location in Signature
Random Signature

Google spoke about these changes:

These decisions were made based based mainly on usage, taking feature polish and your feedback into account. We’ve also tweaked some of the graduating features to improve them before making them default Gmail features. For example, we’ve combined Go To Label with Search Autocomplete, making it easier than ever for you to find what you’re looking for.
