"The team has a bunch more things in the works, so stay tuned." Gmail blog, ...

Since the new Gmail 2.0 is out, now updates are more frequent : What do you think will be the next update ? What are your hopes and fears ?

I really think we will have new stuff to use our "virtually unlimited" Gmail storage. Here is what I expect :

* Video support (as mp3) with embedded flash player
* Voice calls / Voicemails (as google talk) integrated in Gmail chat
* Grandcentral/Gmail fusion for voice messages
* Mail fetcher for IMAP (incoming messages, the same as pop3)
* A real contact manager (and not a contact fetcher)
* GPG encryption, signature for important mails (this may disable possibility to search mail, adsense display and custom filters)

That would be nice.

>> Grandcentral/Gmail fusion for voice messages
Pretty sure GrandCentral is for Google Apps.

>> A real contact manager
I like the new Contact Manager, although it is rather slow.

I'd like to see:
* Rich text signatures
* Skins
* LDAP access

Looking forward to this. Could be a great feature!

An even more powerful contact manager could be awesome. LDAP access as well – let us have external access for the contacts as well!

Viewing of received videos, as were the case of mp3's, could be useful too.

I just received a mail from a reader of Zorgloob saying that AIM chat is active on its account...

I'm waiting for his answer to provide me a decent screen capture.

I want voice support in the chat too, but what I want more than everything else is RSS integration. I mean real integration; something like (please, forgive me for saying this) like... live mail. Google reader "embeded" into GMail.

I've got AIM Chat aswell, although I don't have any AIM "buddies".
