Google is planning to release a brand new design for its Gmail web interface.
The company says that this new design will include a few new features that will become available to regular Gmail accounts as well.
Google also promised a fresh and clean look for Gmail on the web and the new features would include Smart Reply, offline support and the ability to snooze emails.
Google recently updated Google Calendar’s design
Even if we don’t know exactly how the new design for Gmail will look like, we do know that Google recently updated its Calendar.
The Google Calendar now includes more colors, modern icons, and cleaner event boxes.
Its design is now more like the mobile application, so it’s probably not too far-fetched to assume that Google will make similar changes to Gmail as well.
Back in 2014, Google radically changed the design of Gmail for its separate Inbox app, but for its web version, Google preferred to stick to the original Gmail design.
“We’re working on some major updates to Gmail.”
Google tests Chrome’s extensions for compatibility
Google’s Gmail redesign will become available in the forthcoming weeks as an early access program for G suite customers and also personal Gmail accounts.
Google wants to test critical Chrome extensions just to make sure that this whole new revamped Gmail experience is primarily compatible before the company makes it available to the general public.
The Verge announced this new design that Google has been working on for Gmail and it seems that a Google spokesperson released a statement for them.
“We’re working on some major updates to Gmail (they’re still in draft phase),” stated a 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.”
Anyway, we can’t wait to see how the new Gmail experience will look and feel like.
