The Gmail Web interface is getting a fresh and clean look soon.
The tech giant is planning to revamp the Gmail web interface with a new and updated design. This is according to an email sent to G Suite administrators and obtained by The Verge.
Google’s email service will reportedly get “several new features” which would also be available to regular accounts. These features include offline support, Smart Reply and the ability to snooze emails. Those who have been using the app might already be familiar with Smart Reply, the algorithmically-generated replies that show up as suggestions.
The redesigned web interface will also have easy access to G Suite apps like Google Calendar from within Gmail.
In the email, Google explained that G Suite customers and regular Gmail users will have to opt in into the new Early Adopter Program (EAP) to gain access to this new design. The company wants to test Chrome extensions’ compatibility before rolling it out to the public.
A Google spokesperson confirmed the news through a statement. “We’re working on some major updates to Gmail (they’re still in draft phase),” he explained. “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.”
