Google has introduced a new feature that will allow users to send emails as attachments without downloading them first.

Announcing the update in a blogpost, the tech giant said, "We’ve heard from you that there are situations where attaching emails makes more sense than forwarding separate emails, like wanting to forward multiple messages related to a single topic. With this new functionality, you can do exactly that. Sending emails as attachments allows you to write a summary email message to your recipients, and attach the set of supporting emails that recipients can directly open in their mail client."

Users will be able to use the feature by clicking on the 'Forward as attachment' option in the three-dot More menu. The feature is being rolled out gradually, and users can check for it in the 'More' menu.

Google said that the attached emails will become .eml files, and will open in a new window.

There is no limit to the number of emails users can attach.

Additionally, there is no need to create a brand new thread for replying to an email, as well. Just pop out the draft window when replying to someone, then drag and drop emails to it like a user would do while creating a new draft entirely.
