The Google Team announced This Monday is a change in Gmail's behavior when an incoming message is among existing contacts. All messages from people currently in your contact list will now be viewed in full format without any need for activation or additional click.
?Often the messages you receive with the images are from friends or family and there is no reason to worry about your privacy – you just want to see your newborn grandson's photo or the invitation design you are sending. So in these cases we decided to start displaying images by default. Now whenever someone matches at least twice with email with images, you will see them immediately, ?explained Google.
