The Sender Time Zone Gmail Lab Shows You When and When Not to Call Someone

Sender Time Zone Lab Tells You When and When Not to Call Someone

The latest and greatest Gmail Lab is called Sender Time Zone and is perfect for someone like me who has friends and family located in many different time zones.

Now when you enable Sender Time Zone, you'll see a green phone icon next to your contacts that are reachable (it's between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. their time) and red phones for those who are away from their desk or sleeping. And when you click "show details" you'll be able to see what time the message was sent from your time zone and what time it is for the recipient. Now you can avoid the small talk of asking "so what time is it over there?." Thanks Gmail!

omigosh this is a life saver! i'm pretty sure i have friends in ever time zone, due to my parents being from overseas, each from different countries, and all my family has just spread out all over the place plus i move every other year because of my dad's job, so i have friends all over the us too you'd think that because of all this i'd be an expert at time zones, but the only one i know is that indonesia is around 12 hours different. i think they're ahead but i'm not positive. it makes for god awful jetlag.
