It’s a big day for Google’s popular Gmail product as some features from the Lab section are moving into full production, while a few others are headed for the trash bin.

Google announced today that six features are moving out of the Lab area and in to full production use:

  • Search Autocomplete
  • Go To Label
  • Forgotten Attachment Detector
  • YouTube Previews
  • Custom Label Colors
  • Vacation Dates

These have been some of the most useful features in the Lab, and now you won’t have to do anything extra to use them.

At the same time, five features are being cut:

  • Muzzle
  • Fixed Width Font
  • Email Addict
  • Location in Signature
  • Random Signature

None of these were that terribly useful, so not too sad to see them go.

Enjoy the new features if you hadn’t already added them via Labs to your account (like I had done with most of them).  I particularly like the YouTube Previews as it saves you having to go out to the site.
