  • Gmail's getting a major update on desktop and mobile

Today, however, Google announced a bevy of updates including the first major redesign of Gmail's web interface in years.

The all-new Gmail is now live, and it features a ton of new functionalities.

If you're ready to get started with the new Gmail, you can start today on Gmail Business accounts if you're part of the G Suite Early Adopter Program.

Want to try some of these new features for yourself?


It appears that the time has come, at least in form of a preview that all users of Gmail may activate to check out the new interface. Here's what you need to know. The UI also changes group utility tasks like Calendar and note-taking services into the same page as the emails thus making it slightly easier for the users to access these services from a single source.

Google has saved the best for last and the new "confidential mode" allows users to remove the option to copy, forward, download or print messages. "Confidential" mode also helps reduce the risk of private information being accidentally shared with the wrong people. For instance, you can add Google Calendar, Google Keep or Google Tasks in the side window. You can quickly make modifications on the go and also get notifications for tasks that are nearing due. Integrated third-party apps can be accessed from the right rail as well. For example, clicking on attachments (i.e. photos etc) can be done without opening or scrolling through large conversations. Such messages show up at the top of your inbox. Actions are displayed when you hover over emails which you may use to archive, delete, snooze or mark as read right from the inbox. This new option will allow the mail to time-limit its access to recipients and will also require them to enter a one-time passcode sent to their phones to read it. But Google's new Tasks app (available on Android and iOS) is the latest to try and solve the problem. How? For one, you can now set it so Gmail only sends you push notifications for important emails. Reply?", and for sent emails, the mailing client will use text such as "Sent X days ago.

Nudges are new for Gmail's mobile apps, too. Maybe people who are already on top of their emails won't need this, but for those with a lot of volume or simply a tendency to be forgetful, Nudges could be a great help. Smart reply, which has been available on the mobile versions of Gmail for some time now, also gets added to the new web version.

The e-mails themselves have received a slight makeover, though you'll still see threaded messages and have the ability to star those messages that are most important.
