Vivaldi released its own free integrated mail client, Mail 1.0, with Vivaldi’s calendar and feed reader integrated.
Mail 1.0 also offers users the ability to add multiple email accounts, including Google and existing calendar services. Therefore, users should be able to organize their emails and manage schedules, to-do lists, feeds, etc., without leaving their browser.
The new email client is similar to Gmail and Microsoft Outlook, with messages searchable and organized into multiple folders or views. Yet Vivaldi also offers a few slightly more unique ways to customize and manage email, calendars, and feeds.
Each view, for example, comes with a search bar and toggle buttons that can show playlists, streams, bins, and more. These are enabled by default, but you can disable them. So, for example, you can disable “Show Read” when you need to view all unread emails in a specific folder.
Meanwhile, your emails, calendars, feeds, etc. are available as a sidebar that you can quickly view while surfing the web without leaving your page.
Users can further adjust the layout of the mail view in various ways, including being able to change the vertical three-panel layout to a horizontal split view.
Similar to Google Calendar, you can also use Vivaldi’s calendar locally or online. However, you can also create or edit events with Online Event Editing. You can also add events while surfing the web without leaving the browser using a quick command.
There are also some features that privacy enthusiasts might also like, such as the ability to watch YouTube videos online in Vivaldi’s stream player, which Vivaldi says could limit user tracking.
The new client is available on Mac, Windows, and Linux computers as part of the latest version of the Vivaldi browser.
Existing Vivaldi users can start using the new feature by visiting “Settings” then clicking “General.” After that press “Productivity Features” then select “Enable mail, calendar and feeds.”
New users, on the other hand, only need to download the browser and select the “Fully Loaded” layout to enable mail.
