Inviting G Suite Admins to the Gmail Party

Google has sent out an email to G Suite administrators pre-warning them a new version of Gmail is in the works. The redesign will be officially announced in the coming weeks, with G Suite customers invited to join an Early Adopter Program (EAP).

When the EAP arrives it will introduce “a new design for the Gmail web interface, as well as several new features”. Google is telling G Suite administrators about the changes first. However, the changes will also be made available to users with personal Gmail accounts.

Google lists the following features coming to Gmail:

  • A clean look for Gmail on the web.
  • Easy access to G Suite apps.
  • Smart Reply, just like on mobile.
  • The ability to “snooze” emails.
  • Native offline support.

According to TechCrunch, a reader has seen a Google employee testing the new design on public transport. He claims the new design looks like “a hybrid of Gmail and Inbox”. Whether that’s true or not it’s guaranteed to follow Google’s Material Design concept.

Google has promised to share more details on The Keyword and the G Suite Update blog when the EAP opens. We’ll be sure to keep our eyes firmly peeled to find out when the new web version of Gmail is going to be made available to ordinary Gmail users.

    After a perfectly clear and understandable gmail, some, probably young persons, at Google made a change, which will make a lot of users say thank you and goodbye, but still using their gmail address in another email software.

    Instead of remaking a whole software, it would be much better to add parts of the change(s) over a long time. That would be much more user friendly, as most users aren't computer pros!

    I understand there are different divisions working on different aspects at Google, but how about they finish up some of their other projects? Things like Google Voice, Hangouts (and Hangouts Dialer,) Duo, much of it has become disjointed. Their focus really should be on unifying their other products instead of trying to make a better mousetrap out of one of their current product lines.
