New Gmail Interface: Safer and Smarter Communication

Earlier this year, Google announced major changes to Gmail on the web to increase safety and make you more productive. Current G Suite Mail customers can access the new interface and upgrade to more than just a modern new look and feel.

The new interface is designed to support safer, smarter and more efficient communication, and includes a host of new features:

  • enhanced security warnings when an email looks suspicious
  • intelligent email responses to expedite replies
  • enhanced task and calendar integration to improve productivity
  • convenient snoozing options to postpone email notification

To get started with the new look now, open Google Mail, then select Try it now when prompted. All G Suite Mail customers will be automatically migrated to the new interface beginning September 18, 2018. You will have the option to return to the classic look until the new look becomes the default interface on October 16, 2018

Refer to Google's article, "Learn what’s new in Gmail" for more information.
