Google in its blog said that the company has brought the change because a lot of time is wasted in copy pasting this information from one place to another or from a mail to another app or website. The update is available for Gmail and Inbox apps on Android, iOS and on the web.

The company in its G Suite Update blog mentioned that a text including phone numbers, addresses and email addresses in emails will be converted into interactive hyperlinks. Clicking on the address in the mail will take the user to Google Maps, clicking on the email address provided in the mail will compose a new mail using the user's 'default email client'. The phone number interactive hyperlink will start a call using the default app of the users device.

The new Gmail feature will be available to all G Suite editions and will be visible within one to three days.
