Google has redesigned its entire Gmail website.
The company will introduce a new experience that combines Meet, Chat and Space, its messaging, video and group chat features, into the core Gmail client.
It also launches Google’s “Material U” design feature that turns the compose button into a square rectangle and adds a new color to the buttons, side panels, and read emails.
Content is available to all You users, while the new unified view, which has a side panel with icons for Mail, Chat, Spaces and Meetings, will be available to everyone who has enabled the chat feature.
Users who don’t like the new format can switch back to the old view of Gmail via the Quick Settings menu. Go to the top right, click Settings, then click Quick Settings, click Back to the original Gmail view, then reload the page.
“Label lovers will see separate sections for system labels (like select, postponed, and important) and custom labels you create yourself. And people who prefer to chat will see conversation bubbles with snippets of incoming messages. , along with the option to reply immediately instead of opening the full message,” Google said in a blog post announcing the change.
Google also brings search chips to your inbox to quickly find emails with unread messages or attachments and get better search results that suggest better matches.
This year, Google will also improve the Gmail experience for tablet users with better emoji, new accessibility features, and more.
