Google has announced that it will launch a fundamentally redesigned version of Gmail for iOS and Android devices months after it has transformed the user into desktop and web browsers.
In the coming weeks, a number of new features will be introduced for mobile and tablet devices, including nudges and smart replies, which are partly powered by machine training as part of Google's broader effort to rebuild the productivity app suite.
Google's material theme, which debuted with the new Gmail in 2018, and then in Drive, Calendar, and Google Docs, will be included in all G Suite apps, the company announced on the blog.
"Today we also started the year with a new look on Gmail mobile. As part of the new design, you can quickly view attachments like photos without opening or scrolling," said Gmail Product Manager Nikolus Ray.
"It's also easier to switch between personal and work accounts so you can access all your emails without breaking your sweat. And like the web, you'll get big, red alerts to alert you when something looks like phish-y."
Last year, the Technical Giant released a redesign of its leading e-mail services to enhance user experience and introduce new technologies and features designed to ease inbox management. They included yellow "nudges" that force users to come back or follow messages that are unaffected by the day as well as high priority messages.
However, Google is not the only company working on major changes to its email service, and at the beginning of the year, Mozilla announced its efforts to improve its open source client Thunderbird.
Among the highlighted changes is the user interface (UI), better stability and smoother Gmail integration.
IT Pro turned to Google for further comments and asked for a more accurate schedule for launching the remodeled mobile version of the rest of the G Suite.
