Google plans redesign for Gmail on the web

Adjust Comment Print

Gmail's web interface hasn't changed in years - you can probably expect a new interface that follows Google's Material design language.

But with the new "fresh, clean look" for Gmail on the web, all of that will change.

Google says the update will also bring offline support, as well as the ability to snooze emails, a popular feature found on many third-party email clients.

He's often said he doesn't like to broadcast in advance what he would do, in terms of military strikes. It was not immediately clear whether that visit would delay or avert US or allied military action.

Google's Gmail redesign will be available in the coming weeks as an early access program for G Suite customers and personal Gmail accounts. Android users have already been able to take advantage of the Smart Reply feature, and the snooze function is available in Inbox but there's more to look forward to. If there's an important email you need to respond to eventually but you'd like to keep your email free of clutter, you can have it pop back up right when you have the time to work on it. As the company is slowly phasing out Chrome Apps, Google will now be using standard web technologies to let your browser store your data.

Google isn't revealing exactly what the new design for Gmail looks like, but the company did recently launch a new design for Google Calendar.

Google isn't saying much about the Gmail redesign, though it noted it's "working on some major updates to Gmail" in a statement to The Verge, adding these are "still in draft phase". The left-side column was more like and the right side was an enlarged version of Gmail.
