Google to Launch Gmail Design with New Features


Technology giant Google is reportedly launching new design for its Gmail web interface in coming weeks

In an email to G Suite administrators, the company reported that new design will include ‘several new features’ that will be available in regular Gmail accounts. Google promises a ‘fresh, clean look for Gmail on the web,’ with features such as Smart Reply, the ability to snooze emails, and offline support. Google’s Gmail redesign will be available in the coming weeks as an early access program for G Suite customers and personal Gmail accounts.

Google is looking to test critical Chrome extensions, to ensure the new Gmail experience is compatible before it’s widely available. Google confirmed a new Gmail is on the way in a statement. “We’re working on some major updates to Gmail,” said Google spokesperson. “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.”

However, the company did not reveal exactly what the new design for Gmail will look like. It recently launch a new design for Google Calendar. The calendar was updated with modern icons, colors and cleaner event boxes. The design looks similar to the mobile app and it’s reasonable to assume that Gmail itself will be updated in a similar way. In 2014, although Google redesigned Gmail for its separate Inbox app back, the company stuck to the original Gmail design so far for its web version.
