Google just announced that they are about to launch a new version of their most used Email service provider Gmail. You can preview incomplete version of new Gmail by changing your Gmail theme to “Preview” theme from Gmail settings. New Gmail version is clean more simple and few extra tweaks/features.
Jason Cornwell, user experience designer for Gmail, unveils the new version in the video. The Google Operating System blog spotted the video and it has since been made private — but not before YouTube user crlsndrsjmnz had time to repost it, so the video was actually posted live by mistake and now it’s public.
The new version of Gmail makes it more simple and usable for any type of computer users. Gmail will expand dynamically to accommodate any window size; users can adjust the size of label and chat areas; themes will include high-definition imagery; conversations — a.k.a. email threads — have been redesigned for readability and will include profile pictures (conversations look like more status updates); and search has been made more user-friendly, which means regular users can stop worrying about using Gmail search operators and simply input text into fields to find email messages.
Of all of the new additions, I think the coolest part is that Gmail will adapt to you, and make your email/chat experience that much more personal. And isn’t that what email is all about?
Check out the leaked video of the new Gmail is below after the break.
