Google set to revamp Gmail in the coming weeks

Tech giant Google announced that it is soon set to receive its first major new look in several years and currently working on revamping its email service, Gmail, for web users, and will be rolled out in the coming weeks.

The company had sent out a mail to G Suite users informing them of the development of a new version of the email service.

In a memo to G Suite administrators that leaked today, Google Inc. revealed plans to release a brand-new interface for the web version of its ubiquitous email service which will be rolling out in the coming weeks.

The search giant said the changes will also become available for the majority of Gmail users who rely on the free edition.

According to a TechCrunch report, the revamp, which is taking place after several years, will also include a number of features.

With the new version of Gmail, users may be allowed to access Google Calendar from the Gmail interface directly. Google may introduce a snooze option for the mail to reappear in the inbox after a specific time frame, in case a user is unable to attend to a mail immediately.

As for the update itself, Google didn’t go into detail about exactly what modifications will be made to the email service’s interface.

However, the company listed a few of the new features that are set to launch alongside the revamped look.
