Google Gmail: Add your location to your signature

Gmail today made available a new feature for its more adventurous Gmail users who love to swim in new waters without any hesitation. With this new feature you can add your location directly to your signature automatically.This feature works on by detecting your IP address and then using that IP address to locate your location. After that it puts the location directly below in your signature.It detects your location and appends the city region and country names to your signature, like this:

To try it, turn on Location in Signature from the Labs tab under Settings, then go to your signature preferences and check the box next to “Append your location to the signature.”

It’ll use your public IP address to determine your location, so it may not always be that accurate. For example, if you’re at Heathrow airport, IP detection may put you in Germany. If you want more accurate location detection, make sure your browser has a version of Gears that supports the location module. That way, Gears can make use of wi-fi access point signals to recognize that you’re actually in London.

You’ll always be able to disable the option or just delete your location from specific emails whenever you want.
