Gmail will soon have a new helpful feature for users who buy stuff online. 

Gmail tracking message

Rolling out in the coming weeks, the feature will show the tracking and delivery details of a package in your inbox, the company said Wednesday. 

Package tracking will work with most US shipping carriers, and users can decide whether to opt in for the feature. Once confirmed, Gmail will look up the status of shipments from the tracking numbers found in the inbox. 

Along with information on when a package is delivered, the new feature will also display when a package is delayed.
