news material Gmail: Google is activating its new interface everywhere, what changes for you?
Already available for testing since February, the new interface of Gmail, Google’s messaging service, is finally deployed on a large scale for everyone. Between graphic overhaul and optimization of the tabs, we are entitled to a little polish that is good for the eyes.
Gmail is modernizing and standardizing its interface with Material You
Available in the application settings since its announcement last February, we had almost forgotten that the new Gmail interface was still only in testing and that it was not automatically deployed to everyone.
So far, if you want to see what’s new first, you have to manually go to the app settings and ask to “Try the new Gmail view”. Simple, fast and effective, it nevertheless required an action on your part which does not really encourage those resistant to change to take action.
But since Tuesday, June 28, a change of course, Gmail having 100% finalized its new interface, it is now pushed automatically in order to standardize all media and make the link with Material You, Google’s graphic charter new generation appeared in particular on the latest Google Pixel smartphones.
New Gmail, a smoother, smoother, and better-integrated graphical overhaul
Concretely, immediately reassure your parents who are resistant to changes, in the end, it will not change much for them.
The main change is purely aesthetic, the borders of the frames are rounded, some colors also change, so there is a sort of blue highlighting for unread emails while read ones appear under a white background. Of course, this is tempered according to the activated theme and everyone can make it their own and have something that looks like them and makes them smile when they arrive at work in the morning.
Finally, the biggest change is the appearance of a small column on the left side in which there are shortcuts to the Google Chat, Google Spaces and Google Meet applications.
For all other Google applications (Drive, Photos, Calendar, Maps, Youtube, etc.), no change, they are still grouped under the small icon at the top right of the screen, next to your portrait.
Not a radical change per se, but a welcome overhaul that modernizes the service and makes it even more pleasant to use.
