The day has finally arrived: after several weeks of waiting since the redesign of Gmail is filtered in full , Google has announced the deployment of new Gmail to all the world , with more features, better design, and much more.
From today, a large part of Gmail users can access the new features that today reach the mail platform , including the totally renewed appearance that has released the web version, with a style that is even closer to the guides of Material Design 2.
At a visual level, the interface that reaches the platform today is much more akin to the Material Design lines that Google uses in the rest of the services, with light colors and rounded figures . One of the great additions at the design level is the drop-down sidebar, which allows access to different tools of the mail manager.
Before discovering how to activate the new edition of Gmail in its desktop version, it is necessary to review all the functions that land next to this edition of the mail client. First, they have been integrated commonly used applications like Calendar, Keep, or Tasks, which has recently been revived in the form of a separate app.
Another big change that comes to Gmail, is a notice that “encourages” us to answer those emails received several days ago , which for some reason we have ignored. In this way, Gmail will try not to lose anything of what enters our inbox.
Gmail in its desktop version, today also receives one of the most useful features that users of the app have enjoyed for some time: the intelligent answer or Spart Replies . This function analyzes the content of each email, and automatically shows predefined responses based on the context, which the user can send quickly.
Next to the quick answers, probably the most important tool that arrives at Gmail is the Confidential Mode , which we already talked about in more detail , which eliminates the possibility of forwarding, copying, downloading or printing messages that we have sent, and even send emails that will disappear automatically after a time defined by the user.
Finally, Google notes that the mobile version of Gmail has also received new features such as high priority notifications or potentially dangerous email notices, an option for unsubscribe quickly from newsletters or offers that we no longer care, or the possibility of postponing emails, something that we already found in Inbox, the other Google email manager.
The new design of Gmail, with the mentioned novelties, begins its deployment today officially . Google, however, points out that some of the functions mentioned will not be available until a few weeks.
To be able to enable it, you only need to access the Gmail inbox in the desktop version, and from the settings icon located in the top right, access the “Settings” menu. A new option called “Try the new Gmail” , which once activated will completely change the design of the platform.
In the same way, you can return to the old design , although it is to be assumed that sooner or later this redesign will become the default interface of Gmail, with no possibility of going back.
