OK you crazy Gmail Auto Pop Out party people: we’ve been banging on this upgrade for two weeks and my developers are exhausted and laying on the floor, sleeping. They are also ready to throw me out the window.
As power Gmail user myself, I created this extension to have features I wished Gmail had in the settings. This Chrome extension for Gmail does 4 simple things:
1) Automatically pops-out replies, replies-all, and forwards (option of small window or large window)
2) Automatically shows the CC and BCC lines
3) Automatically shows the Subject Line
4) Notifies you if the Subject line is blank/empty before you send
Note: If you have the “Default to full screen” setting checked (click the 3 dots at the bottom right of a new Compose window), it may interfere with the functionality of this extension). Be sure to uncheck that setting.
Please let me know if you have any ideas or issues. – Tim
Awesome. Great help. Only my chiropractor is annoyed because now I don't have to have my head straightened from the bottom right back to the middle of my neck once a week (honestly, does anyone know the reason Google thinks the little chat-style window on the bottom right is a good solution?).
Glad you are finding it useful - thanks Tyler. - Tim
FINALLY! This extension saves me so much hassle and time from having to click pop-out, full size, then the three dots to see the last message chain of text each time. Thank you!!
Thank you Andro - we will work on adding screenshots to make the instructions better.
Super 10/10 recommend to add screenshot for more understandable
Hi Danielle - very sorry it's not working well for you. I have uploaded some fixes over the last few days that helps with the issue of the extension not working at all times. I would be happy to get on a Google Meet and see if I can help you get this working properly. Email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. - Tim (PS. if you haven't done so already, try uninstalling it, reinstalling the latest version, and restarting your browser. But if you've done that already, let me know if I can help you get it working properly.
This extension continuously glitches. It only works as advertised about 1/5 of the time. The rest of the time only one or two of it's multiple functions work. EXTREMELY frustrating and time consuming. The ONLY reason I have it still as an extension is because it is the only one available and it very occasionally works.
Thank you so much Cat - the upgrade was a bit of a rough road, but I think we've got it fixed up. Thanks for the kind words.
SUPER helpful and works great. After a recent Chrome update it was working a little wonky and the developer was quick to fix the issues, and to even reply on their support page and explain troubleshooting/when fixes were made. 10/10, this extension is amazing.
The dragging issue has been fixed in the latest update. Thanks for your patience.
Thank you Naturehike - I am glad it is helping you work better with Gmail.
AMAZING App and AMAZING customer support. I had an issue and the developer took time out of his schedule to google meet me and resolve the issue! WOW! That is cool. The app helps me since I often forward emails and change the subject and CC and BCC people. I am used to Yahoo email and Gmail is very different, this app closes the gap. I like a full screen view and this app does that automatically. So convenient. Thank you Platform Software, YOU ARE AWESOME!
Hi Byron, you may find it works if you close Chrome entirely and re-open it. Sometimes deleting the extension and re-installing after closing Chrome also works.
New issue occurred as of the April 2021 that the width of the compose window no longer stays at 100% when zooming in.
I would say dragging is a pretty basic feature that should not be sacrificed. It also seems that whatever update occurred broke more than just that. I'm having what I estimate to be a 55-60% success ratio that the extension even does anything at the moment. I often have to delete my draft and click reply again for it to actually expand everything. Everything is up to date as well. If it was an extension update, I would greatly prefer it be rolled back as it was incredibly useful previously and I cant seem to find another extension that does anything similar. Thank you.
Thank you Amanda - glad the extension is helping you be efficient with clicks!
I've used this extension for over a year and I love it. It greatly streamlines and speeds up the way I use Gmail for Work. I spend a large part of my work day writing and replying to email and it saves me ALL THE CLICKS.
Thank you for the great review Brett! I'm glad it's been useful for you!
If I could have only one Chrome extension, this would be it! I've been using the Gmail Auto Pop Out for a year now and it has truly revolutionized my Gmail experience. I reply to a lot of emails at work and this finally corrects everything I had always wished Gmail would do when I hit reply, reply all, or forward. As others have mentioned, Google really needs to adopt this as an option in settings. I was unable to utilize it for a while today and it reminded me how fantastic and desperately needed this application is for me. A huge thank you and please keep this extension active forever!
Does exactly what I need but, a few days ago it started preventing me from dragging recipients between the TO, CC, BCC fields. Initially it worked fine but it has recently locked the recipients in place. If I turn the extension off, I have no problem dragging the email addresses between the fields.
Thank you V - glad you find it useful.
This extension works great, The new version opens the emails in new window as well. So much helpful. Saving my time...
Thank you Narissa. Glad it is useful.
Works great. Exactly what I needed. Thanks!
Glad you find it useful! It does not collect any information. It simply forces Gmail to open the larger window when you click Reply, Reply All and Forward. We wrote it for ourselves since we were frustrated with the way Gmail behaved in those functions.
Nice extension! Can you summarize what information/usage data the extension collects?
Thank you Aron, glad it is helpful!
Finally! I can edit subject fields when forwarding to evernote, etc.
Thank you Krishna! Glad you found it useful.
Awesome extention i really neded this type of extention to make my work fast was really annoyed of constant clicking... Kudos to dev
Glad you found it useful Jiovanni - thanks for the kind words.
This extension is a HUGE time saver. It works perfectly, as advertised, and is even customizable (show/hide CC and BCC fields). I have to change subject lines very often when replying, so this saves me clicks on nearly every email. You have to wonder how this is not standard functionality within Gmail! Very well done on this extension - it works perfectly.
Thank You - The Best App for Gmail, I wish GMAIL would Adopt this APP!
Thanks Maria. Glad you found it useful.
I love this extension, it's really useful, and i've seen many people online trying to find a solution for this! Thanks to this developer for making our lives easier!
