Google is Giving Gmail a Makeover 'In the Coming Weeks'
Apr 12 2018 by Michele Stevens
Google has reportedly been tinkering with its Gmail design. Gmail is likely to be the same; the new version will probably roll out to beta users in the next few weeks, it'll hit the mainstream as an option a month or two later, and within six months, all users will likely be forced to migrate.
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. He described it as a hybrid of Gmail and Inbox.
Google announced the incoming redesign in an email to G Suite subscribers, which The Verge managed to get a copy of.
Essentially, it appears as if the new Gmail design will be a combination of two of their popular interfaces - combining the best of stock Gmail with their trendy new Inbox service.
New Battle Royale items uncovered
A device called the "Port-a-Fort" will also be introduced, that does exactly what the name implies. The patch also adds replays to Battle Royale , and new skins and questlines for Save the World .
Ability to "snooze" emails and choose when they reappear in your inbox. Overall the design looked a lot more like the mobile app, and it's reasonable to assume that Gmail itself will be updated in a similar way. These replies can be curt, but are useful when you are in a rush and do not have time to type out a longer email. We need a bit more time to compose ourselves, so can't share anything yet-archive this for now, and we'll let you know when it's time to hit send.
With the launch of the EAP, Gmail will not initially have offline support, but Google promises that "native offline support in the new Gmail experience" will be available by June 2018. The company recommends "testing any critical Chrome extensions before more broadly enabling the new Gmail experience within your organization".
According to the email, G Suite customers and regular Gmail users must join the EAP to access the updated Gmail.
