Want Google to analyze your email habits? The search engine giant has launched a new stats program called Google Meter that allows Gmail users to learn more about their inbox, from whether they’re more likely to write long emails to information on how long it takes you to typically reply.
Called Gmail Meter, the program analyzes email patterns to give a better sense of overall inbox activity. Gmail Meter runs on the first day of every month and sends users an email containing different statistics about your Inbox.
For example, Gmail Meter provides stats about the number of important and starred messages in your inbox, as well as how often you email with others. Additional features include a tool that reveals stats on how you manage your inbox and how you how long it takes for you to reply (and how long it takes for them to respond).
It also tracks whether you are prone to writing short or long emails, and averages what your usual word count might be.
There’s a few steps you need to take to set up Gmail Meter, but it’s a simple process. Go to Google Docs and create a new spreadsheet (and save it). Click on Tools, followed by Script Gallery, then search for “Gmail Meter” and click Install. An authorization prompt will ask for you to grant the tool access.
A new menu item called Gmail Meter will appear on the spreadsheet. Select Gmail Meter and then Get a Report. You will get an email once the report is ready.
