Gmail adds Labs function, email signature can add location information

The positioning function seems to be a feature that Google recently promoted. First, they launched a new location-sharing service, Google Latitude. Now, the Gmail team has announced a new Labs feature that will let you automatically include your location in the signature of your emails.


Why do you want to do this? Maybe you want to emphasize your lifestyle, maybe you want to remind the recipient that you’re in a different time zone. Or you might just want to use it as a memory device to search for emails sent from the sender based on the location of the sender.


If you want to give it a try, there are only two steps to activate this feature. First, log in to Labs and enable this feature. Then, select the option “Append your location to signature” in your signature settings. That’ll be fine.


But you also need to know that this is just a function of Labs, so it is not perfect. For example, this location function is IP-based detection. Therefore, the feature may not be as accurate as you think. For example, if the company IP you are using displays a different address, it may be due to different targeting methods. Would you like this targeting method to be more accurate? You can install Gears so that the location component can use Wi-Fi to find out your whereabouts.


What if you don’t want someone to know that you’re not where you say you are? It’s easy, just delete the location information before you send the email. (When the writing window is open, the signature and address are appended to the message.)


Readers may ask, why does Google not connect this feature with Google Latitude? Our guess is that the two projects are going in different directions, considering that Google only owns 20% of the feature. If the feature can be extended beyond Labs, it could be tied into Google Latitude.


If you want to test out geo-location features or let people (and Google) know where you are, then this feature from Gmail is just what you’re looking for.
