If you need to add someone to a discussion in an email there’s now an option to ‘@’ mention them

Whether you’re introducing a new colleague via email or simply want to follow up with multiple contacts, this new feature allows you to save time and get things done a little easier.  

In Gmail, Simply use:


Mention a contact


To add another contact to the mail

When you @mention the contact within your email, the recipient will be able to click on the contact and it will open up in a new compose window so they have the option to email the contact themselves.
