New Gmail is Live if You Opt In

Google launches revamped Gmail.

Google started to roll out the new Gmail interface today. You can start using these new updates in Gmail on the web today, with some features appearing within the coming weeks. Go to Settings (the cog wheel in the top right corner of your inbox) and select “Try the new Gmail.” If you don't like the new Gmail, you can switch back later in settings selecting “Go back to classic Gmail.”

I moved to a G Suite Gmail account over a year ago, migrating years worth of emails from a conventional email server. I've never regretted the move. Gmail is doing an amazing job of keeping spam out and works fast in the browser. I don't miss a desktop client at all.

A new user interface is not what I asked for as I don't have in case there is a learning curve. I will hold off on switching to the new Gmail as I don't miss anything for my daily work at the moment.

Google promises that Gmail’s new look helps you get more done. Click on attachments—like photos—without opening or scrolling through large conversations, use the new snooze button to put off emails that you just can’t get to right now or easily access other apps you use often, like Google Calendar, Tasks and Keep.

Gmail will also “nudge” you to follow up and respond to messages with quick reminders that appear next to your email messages to help make sure nothing slips through the cracks.

Google also added Smart Reply to Gmail on the web to help you reply to messages faster. New features on mobile, like high-priority notifications, can notify you of important messages to help you stay focused without interruption. Plus, Gmail will start suggesting when to unsubscribe from newsletters or offers you no longer care about.

And you might notice new warnings in Gmail that alert you when potentially risky email comes through. Finally, a new confidential mode allows you to remove the option to forward, copy, download or print messages—useful for when you have to send sensitive information via email like a tax return or your social security number. You can also make a message expire after a set period of time to help you stay in control of your information.
