Google To Rollout Gmail Redesign For Web Users In The Coming Weeks

The update will also better access to built-in G Suite amenities, like Google Calendar.

Worth noting is the possibility that some popular Chrome extensions won't work with the new Gmail experience.

Google has reportedly been tinkering with its Gmail design.

One of the biggest additions is the ability to access Google Calendar directly from the Gmail interface - a feature that, while excellent for everyone, will likely be much appreciated by people who use third-party clients like Outlook.

Some changes could be coming to Gmail.

Google sent an email to G Suite customers to tell them that the company has been working on a brand new version of Gmail for the web. Users will also be able to snooze emails so they'll reappear at a later time, and Google is planning offline support as well, though it sounds like it won't launch until after the redesign is in place.

The current incarnation of Gmail features separates your inbox into different categories, such as Social and Promotions.

Based on Google's mockup that you see above, the redesigned Gmail for web does away with the tabs and generally appears like it does on mobile.

According to Engadget, the changes include bringing Google's Smart Replies feature to the web, email snooze functions, and native support for offline emails. This is a good way to clean your inbox if you can't reply to a specific email just yet.

Speaking of Chrome apps, Google warned that Chrome extensions are not guaranteed to work with the updated Gmail.
