Google is Giving Gmail a Makeover 'In the Coming Weeks'

Glowing Gmail icon

Google is working on a big new redesign for Gmail.

As spotted by Techcrunch and The Verge, the new version of Gmail is expected to implement a "a fresh clean look for Gmail on the web" as well as several interesting new features.

Around 1.2 billion people use Gmail, and it is the second-most popular email client out there, trailing Apple's native iPhone client, according to research from Litmus. The family of Google apps will be better integrated with Google noting "easy access" to services like Calendar "from within Gmail".

Snoozing emails lets you temporarily remove an email from your inbox and have it reappear later, like at a set time or when you arrive at a specific destination. If there's an important email you need to respond to eventually but you'd like to keep your email free of clutter, you can have it pop back up right when you have the time to work on it.

Google will be releasing the new Gmail as part of a beta program, the Early Adopter Program, or EAP for short.

While it's unclear what the new redesign of Gmail will look like, we do know what type of new features to expect: Smart Reply, email snoozing, and offline support. Google issues a warning that some Chrome extensions may not be compatible with the Gmail redesign, but does not specify which. Overall the design looked a lot more like the mobile app, and it's reasonable to assume that Gmail itself will be updated in a similar way. The color in the background had a blue-ish gradient.
