Google is reportedly planning to redesign Gmail’s web interface soon. The information was revealed in an email to G Suite administrators, which was obtained by The Verge. According to Google, the new design will also bring some new features to regular Gmail accounts, that aren’t under the G Suite service.
The company promised a “fresh, clean look for Gmail on the web” and said that features like Smart Reply, snoozing emails and offline support will also be added. There will also be a new design for the Google Calendar. There will be new colours, icons and “cleaner event boxes” the company said.
The Verge’s report states that Google’s Gmail redesign will be “available in the coming weeks as an early access program” for customers of Google’s G Suite service. Personal Gmail users will also be getting these features. The last time Gmail was given a new look was in 2014.
“We’re working on some major updates to Gmail (they’re still in draft phase),” a spokesperson from Google told The Verge. “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,” the company added.
