How to share a draft in Gmail?

Mamdouh Abdel Meguid Updated by Mamdouh Abdel Meguid

Shared email drafts let you collaborate on the edition of a reply right from Gmail. A shared draft is always shared with the members of a shared conversation. You can then ping the specific users with whom you want to collaborate on the edition and review of the draft.

Share a draft on a new email thread

In its current version, Gmelius shared drafts allow you to share the draft on a reply of a shared conversation but not on a new email thread. Since the 15th of March 2022 you can share a draft by composing a new email in Google Docs. See the steps here.
