New Features of Mail.Ru

The new features are being added to Mail.Ru’s services, which include:

  1. The ability to order a parcel online and have it delivered by mail;
  2. You can now file reports on suspicious messages in your inbox rather than deleting them outright;
  3. A chat service will be added for people who don’t want to share their phone number;
  4. If you don’t want your password to show up in the login form on other computers, this can be disabled.
  5. Mail Ru will now store all chat history that it shares with others for a set period of time. This is especially helpful for people who are using Gmail as an alternative and need access to chat history to transfer it over.
  6. The ability to search for VIPs in your contacts list;
  7. A new type of advertising that will be introduced which allows you to buy and sell digital goods, such as games or music, with people on the platform. This can also work like an auction system where a person bids against another player for a digital good.

  9. A new feature that allows you to make your own memes from uploaded images, text, stickers or emojis;

  16. The ability to delete messages that were received from someone who has left the service;

  19. A new option has been added which allows a user who is on vacation or away from their computer to withdraw messages from their inbox.
