If a new report floating around is to be believed, then we should be expecting a newly designed Gmail on the web interface very soon. According to the report, Google is going to introduce a design revamp for Gmail on the web in the coming weeks. The company says the new design will include “several new features” that will also be made available to regular Gmail accounts. Google promises a “fresh, clean look for Gmail on the web,” with features like Smart Reply, the ability to snooze emails and offline support.
Although the report does not state precisely what the new design is going to look like, it merely talked about the new features that it will bring to Gmail on the web. Given that the most recent redesign for Google Calendar made the web version look more like the mobile app, it’s reasonable to assume that Gmail on the web is going to get similar treatment as well. The new design is going to be rolled out to G Suite customers and personal Gmail account holders in the coming weeks as part of an early access program before being widely rolled out to all users.
According to Google’s spokesperson, “We’re working on some major updates to Gmail, although they’re still in draft phase. 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.”
