How to Apply Custom Formatting to the Subject Line in Gmail Emails

Gmail is one of the most popular email services in use around the world. Most people access their account via the Gmail website even though you can configure email clients such as Microsoft Outlook to use with your Gmail account.

Even though Gmail is so popular, many people still find that it lacks features that should be included with the service. One such feature is the ability to apply custom formatting to the subject line of your emails. This feature would allow your emails to stand out among others when received by the people you send them to.

Fortunately, there are many software developers that make addons for Gmail in the form of web browser extensions. One such company is called Cloud HQ, and they make a wide variety of addons and extensions for Gmail and also Google Chrome. They have a browser extension called Formatted Email Subject Lines that will allow you to apply custom formatting to the subject line in Gmail Emails.

All you need to do is install the extension in your web browser to start using the addon. This extension will work with Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. Adding an extension to a web browser is as simple as clicking on the Add to Chrome or Get button depending on what browser you are using.

After you install the extension, you will see a new icon on the subject line when you compose a new message in Gmail.
