Abner Li, writing for 9to5Google:
At Cloud Next ’17, Google quietly announced a revamp to Gmail that focuses on intelligent features like smart reply and groupings. Now, over a year later, an Early Access Program for a “new Gmail experience” is launching in “the coming weeks.”
According to three separate tips we received from current G Suite administrators, this updated experience includes a “new design for the Gmail web interface.” Details only note a “fresh, clean look for Gmail on the web.”
This is nice to hear. With as much use as Gmail gets, it’s surprising that they haven’t done this before now. I really hope that this includes the mobile version of the site as well as it’s still rocking the old Google logo and looks like something out of the early 2000s which, for a company that makes a mobile OS, seems strange.
