A month ago, Google shared a glimpse of revamped Gmail, making it an all in one hub for its customers. Now, today it rolls out the new Gmail experience with dedicated tabs for Mail, Chat, Rooms, and Meet in a single app. In doing so, the users can get their work done from a single app rather than switching to other apps, which is useful during work.
Currently, the revamped design is only rolling out to the G Suite user on Android and Web. However, their iOS user needs to wait for some time more for it. With this, users no need to leave Gmail to share files, or video call or message to their team as these all are available in it.
Below are the include components and what could be done with it:
- Mail, which has not changed and is the same Gmail experience users know and love.
- Chat, which allows users to message individuals and small groups directly.
- Rooms, which are spaces that include shared chat, files, and tasks to help groups more easily work on projects.
- Meet, which features upcoming meetings that you can view and join.
Besides, the company also introduced other tools like the ability to assign group tasks and pin rooms, notifications in rooms, enhanced search for filtering email and chat results, ‘Do Not Disturb’ mode, and more to prioritize your workflow. However, this workspace will enable users to jump to a video call while chatting and will able to open and edit documents within Gmail.
This experience is first rolling out G Suite users who have their ‘Chat preferred’ setting enabled and to customers who are on Rapid Release domains with expected full availability in two weeks starting today. Scheduled Release domains will get it from September 1, next month. You cna check the update notes at Google Blog.
