Automatically add senders location on Gmail Signature

imagesIf you travel frequently and if you would like the reader of your e-mail to know where you are mailing from there is quick and easy way to do so.  You really don’t have to type You Name – Your city and state. Well I am not sure how many people will actually require it, never the less here is a interesting feature from google labs from google mail.

To try it, turn on Location in tab under Settings Signature from the Labs

loc_sig-custom

Click Settings at the top of any Gmail page and add your signature.

persona_sig

You are done, now create a new mail and check your signature ;)

How google find out your location is based on your IP address. This might not be always accurate.

    This is all that is needed this should work. I find Indian users having some problem with the same.

    Boonei,
    I tried this today and it did not work. Am I doing something wrong? I followed these steps
    1) Enabled the Labs Feature that ads map in the signature
    2) Tried composing a mail.

    Nothing extra is shown in the signature. It just displayed the normal text signature which I’ve configured.

      @Khan no it does not, but wish it does :) As you can see I am not biased toward MS or G. I write about them both. Its just for the love of internet.
