Gmail promises to show a new "radical" upgrade

Gmail web revamp leaks w/ rounded design, sidebar widgets, Google Tasks, and more Apple Is Trusted More Than Google And Facebook In Handling Personal Data
Sandra Phillips | 14 April, 2018, 07:05

This afternoon, the web redesign, with features like Smart Reply, snoozing, and widget-like plugins, has leaked.

Google is also offering three brand new layouts for users to choose from. But you won't have to wait to discover the new design - thanks to exclusive screenshots obtained by The Verge.

A new snooze feature lets you temporarily remove emails from your inbox until you are ready to go through them and reply.

This could make it easier to schedule meetings and check availability while emailing people. A compact view will look similar to the current version of Gmail but with less vertical whitespace; a default view highlights attachments such as images or documents; and a comfortable view doesn't highlight attachments.

Shortly after reports of a new Gmail design, we now have a sneak peek at the new look of Google's email service, courtesy of our friends from Android Authority and The Verge. You'll also be able to add a passcode to the email.

Google will soon roll out a direct-to-voicemail spam filtering feature to its Phone app to relieve users of spam callers.

Video shows YouTube shooter telling officers she won't hurt anyone
Eventually the officers told Aghdam they would notify her father and say was found safe and does not want to be contacted. The newly-released police body camera video was made hours before she opened fire at YouTube's headquarters in San Bruno.

Google is also reportedly moving the existing stand-alone app, Gmail Offline, to a web-based variant. The sidebar will certainly take some getting used to but we can see the potential it has for managing your day to day workflow from within a single web page.

Today, The Verge has obtained screenshots of the new Gmail design, now being tested inside Google and with trusted partners.

The update will be first be available as an early access program for G Suite customers and people with personal accounts. It's also unclear if the integration is going to work better in the future when everybody is using the new Gmail.

We're working on some major updates to Gmail (they're still in draft phase).

Still, in the wake of data privacy scandals like Facebook's recent Cambridge Analytica incident, it's nice to see companies like Google offering their users extra privacy features.

Google Go‚ a new app that promises "a lighter‚ faster‚ way to search" has been launched to cater especially for Africans coming online with mobile phones as their primary and sometimes only internet device.
