New in Gmail Labs: Sender time zone

Gmail team added a very useful feature in Gmail Labs:Sender time zone for those people who receives messages from around the globe.

Steps to enable Sender time zone :

  1. Login to Gmail.
  2. Go to the following path Setting –> Labs tab and scroll down to locate “Sender time zone”. 
    sender_time_zone
  3. Select “Enable” and then click “Save Changes”.
  4. That's it you are done !

Once this feature is enabled it will show a green phone icon next to people who are probably awake or if it’s appropriate time to call the sender (this is between 9:00 AM and 6:00 PM sender’s local time zone) and red phone icon when they could be out of office or sleeping.
