Google recently announced a new look coming soon to the Gmail experience.

Along with a new web interface, we can expect to see several new features. This change will be made to Business and Personal Gmail accounts, so everyone can be prepared for a change.

TechCrunch gives us an inside look at the interface changes, here.

“As you can see, the new Gmail looks like a hybrid between the current Gmail interface and inbox.google.com. It isn’t a huge departure from the current interface metaphor. So existing Gmail users will still feel right at home.”

According to Google and TechCrunch, you can expect the following features (and more) in the new Gmail experience:

  • A fresh, clean look for Gmail on the web.
  • Easy access to G Suite apps, such as Google Calendar, from within Gmail.
  • Smart Reply on the web, just like on mobile.
  • Ability to "snooze" emails and choose when they reappear in your inbox.
  • According to Google, The new Gmail design is going to come out in a few weeks. While you wait, here is a video look at the new changes from CNET. 

We will keep you updated as changes are announced and when the new design starts to hit users.

UPDATE:

Google recently published a new update about the coming Gmail changes. Here is a look:

  • Opting in to the new Gmail EAP: There’s no need to sign up for the new Gmail EAP; you can simply turn it on in the Admin console.

  • Trying the new Gmail: After you’ve enabled the new Gmail EAP for your organization, your users will have the option to turn it on individually in their Gmail settings.

  • Native offline support in Gmail: We previously announced that we’re moving Chrome apps, like Gmail Offline, to the web. As part of this effort, we’ll introduce native offline support to EAP end users in the coming weeks.

  • Contact cards: We recently launched new cards that surface user profile information when people need it most, right inside G Suite apps.
