Google has finally developed its new redesigned Gmail for desktop and mobile to 1.4 billion of users worldwide which can be accessed through web browsers such as Chrome and Safari., which might be the most significant single upgrade in Gmail’s history.
The complete layout of Gmail seems to be similar to the older version, but the update has a brighter interface with a white background and more colorful menu symbols. The service also appears to be more efficient. Easy-to-access menu tabs run along the top of the interface.
In this blog post, I have listed of the most important changes that you need to know and how to use them. Give it a quick read
Google is providing three new layouts to choose from, including a default view that highlights attachments like documents and photos, a easy view that doesn’t highlight attachments, and a compact view that increases the amount of messages you can see on a single page. The compact view is the most similar to the existing Gmail design, allowing existing users to keep a similar layout
