Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) announced in a blog post that it has updated the entire Gmail website with a new design. The refresh of the Gmail interface was announced in February.
An Integrated View to Facilitate Navigation Between the Different Messaging Tools
The company is currently rolling out a new experience that integrates the company’s messaging, video, and group conversation services, known as Meet, Chat, and Spaces, into the primary Gmail client.
In addition, Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) is launching ‘Material You’ design element, which transforms the compose button into a squared rectangle and adds a new shade to the compose button, the side panel, and emails that have already been viewed.
Material You is being rolled out to users in stages. The new integrated view, which includes a side panel with icons for Mail, Chat, Spaces, and Meet, will be available to all users once the Chat function has been activated.
Users who do not prefer the new layout can utilize the Quick settings menu to revert to the previous version of Gmail’s interface at any time via the Quick Settings menu. In the top right corner, click Settings, then click Go back to the original Gmail view under the Quick Settings section, and finally click Reload.
“Label lovers will see separate sections for system labels (like Starred, Snoozed and Important) and custom labels you make yourself. And people who love to chat will see conversation bubbles with snippets of incoming messages, along with options to quick reply instead of opening the full message”, Google said in a blog post announcing the change.
Google Is Adding Search Chips to the Gmail Inbox
Furthermore, Google is introducing search chips to the inbox, allowing users to search through unread messages or emails with an attachment rapidly. In addition, Google is improving search results by suggesting better matches.
In the latter part of this year, Google is also planning to enhance the Gmail experience for tablet users by adding improved emojis, additional accessibility capabilities, and other enhancements.
