Gmail’s current design as viewed on the web

According to new reports by TechCrunch, the email service will receive an improved design and look, which seem to be aimed at achieving a better sense of minimalism. This makes it easy to avoid the distraction of an email thread until you're ready to reply. Officially unveiling and launching the new look for Gmail at the annual event makes sense, so users may be looking at less than a month before they are able to enjoy the Gmail redesign and new features. Also, in case a user is unable to attend to a mail immediately, Google may introduce a snooze option for the mail to reappear in the inbox after a specific time frame.

"We're working on some major updates to Gmail (they're still in draft phase)", a Google spokesperson confirmed on Wednesday. It's less dramatic - and it's due to a security feature Google will test out on the new Gmail.

Gmail's mobile-app users will also be familiar with the new ability to "snooze" emails on the web interface. The majority of the site will look the same, including the same layout and the same three information density settings Gmail users see today.

Though Google Tasks is still there, but it is pretty much like a panel within the Gmail and as a typical old model website. G Suite customers apparently received word about this Gmail redesign - so check your inbox ASAP because there's another important feature to take note of: emails self-destruct. But in addition to these changes, it looks like Google is also planning to add a new feature called Confidential Mode.
