As new features that depend on your data get added to these products, they will also be controlled by these same settings.

Important: Beginning on January 25th, if you are based in Europe, the above settings will be turned off by default. Once this change is rolled out, multiple features of Gmail and other Google products won’t work unless you enable these settings. Follow the instructions below to set up these options in Gmail settings. 

Change smart features & personalization settings

Important: Changing the settings on Gmail web will also apply to your Gmail mobile app. If you’re using your phone, open your Gmail app (available to install on both iOS and Android) to configure these settings for this account. If you’re using the mobile Gmail app, but have not seen a prompt about these settings yet, we recommend updating your app. If you can’t update your app, you can still change these settings from a desktop browser as described above, but changes might not be properly reflected in your mobile app.
