Google starts rolling out new Gmail design to personal accounts

By Sanuj Bhatia February 15, 2022, 4:30 am

Google unveiled a new look of Gmail for Workspace account earlier this month. The new Gmail UI comes with a "new integrated view." Initially, Google announced that the new Gmail design will only be available for people with Workspace accounts. However, on February 11, Google updated the post saying that it has started to roll out the new UI for "users with personal Google Accounts."

The new-look comes with a navigation menu that allows you to easily switch between your inbox, important conversations, and join meetings without having to switch between tabs or open a new window. There are new Notification bubbles that make it easy to stay on top of what immediately needs your attention. Google says Chat messages will show up in Gmail's search with the new update.


As of this moment, the new design has not started rolling out widely. But Google has highlighted a method by which you can enable the new design on your account once it's available for it.
