General News Google is revamping Gmail with new features and fresh design
#1
Advertisement

Google is reportedly redesigning its email service so that you can continue sticking around. The changes will apply to the web interface of Gmail and will include a bunch of new features which align with Google’s idea of keeping it “fresh and clean”.

One of the biggest additions to Gmail will be the ability to snooze email. Think of it as snoozing a group conversation on a messaging service. It will allow you to disable notifications from a particular email thread. Other features will include Smart Reply, which is currently supported on the mobile version, and offline support.

According to The Verge, Google’s redesigned Gmail will be available in the coming weeks as an early access program for G Suite customers and personal Gmail accounts. The company will also be testing the Chrome extensions to ensure that the new redesign is compatible before a wider rollout.

In a statement to the publication, Google said, “We’re working on some major updates to Gmail (they’re still in draft phase),” adding, “We need a bit more time to compose ourselves, so can’t share anything yet—archive this for now, and we’ll let you know when it’s time to hit send.”

One of the major updates to Gmail in the recent times has been the dedicated Inbox app. Recently, Google also introduced a new design for its Google Calendar with modern icons, colors, and cleaner event boxes. On the other hand, the company is also working on a redesign for its Chrome browser web interface to align with Material Design 2. It is expected to be rolled out sometime in September.

Gmail Redesign Screenshots Leak Gives Us a Look at New Features, Material Design

After reports suggested that Google's mailing client Gmail is all set to get a design and feature overhaul soon, we have our first look at the new design that is expected to roll out in the coming weeks. As per the screenshots, Gmail will adopt certain features currently available in Inbox by Gmail. Apart from that, the mailing service will also incorporate elements from Google's Material Design and Bubble Design. Access to the features is said to be available through the Early Adopter Program followed by wider public availability at Google I/O 2018 in May.

Android Authority, in an exclusive look at the Gmail redesign, reports that the update will bring Gmail up to date with Google's current design standards. Borrowing from its modern sibling Inbox, Gmail is slated to get new features such as Smart Reply and email snooze toggles. Smart Reply rolled out to Gmail on mobile platforms last year. A plugin sidebar is also set to make an appearance with quicker access to other G Suite apps like Google Calendar and Keep.

Apart from that, the Tasks category in Gmail will reportedly get a major makeover. While the feature have previously been available on the mail client, this new update is expected to bring a refreshed UI equipped with Google's Material Design. Gmail will also provide three UI options for the user to choose from: Default shows attachment previews in a mail, Comfortable that displays just the paperclip icon, and Compact that reduces vertical whitespace around the text.

Previous reports have suggested that Gmail will continue to support certain major Chrome extensions even after the redesigned experience. Separately, the Google app on Android is also getting new features with added capabilities for Google Home and Google Assistant.
