As SMS group enables us to send the same message to multiple people without manually entering their mobile numbers in the senders’ list, an email group facilitates us to send the similar email to various recipients. While sending any email to multiple recipients using the email group, you do not need to manually type or select their email addresses. You just need to type the name of the group instead of typing the recipients’ email IDs. And the Gmail automatically enlists all email IDs available in the selected group into the recipients list. Using the email group is beneficial because of the following facts:
* Saves a substantial amount of the time that you waste in manually typing or selecting the email addresses of recipients.
* Once you have included an email ID in the group, Gmail automatically sends a copy of the email to that recipient. Therefore, you never forget to send email to important recipients.
* You can have multiple groups based on the categories like Family group, friends circle, colleague, etc.
