Obtained by The Verge, these screenshots reveal that Gmail's new aesthetic lines up nicely with the design language found in a lot of Google's other apps. The compact view is most similar to the current Gmail layout.

The last time Google overhauled Gmail's web look was in 2011. 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. This will thus help sort out the emails that lay the utmost importance for a given point of time. In addition, the sender is given the option to set an expiration time/date for the email ranging from hours to years.

The source said the new layout looks like a combination of both Gmail and Inbox, whether this is true remains to be seen but the update will be sure to follow the Google material design aesthetic.

Moreover, Gmail will also allow you to set a deadline for certain emails, which, when reached, will trigger the automatic complete deletion of the chosen emails. The redesign will be available in the coming weeks as an early-access programme for G Suite customers.

Google is finally updating the Gmail web design

Google is working on a new Gmail design. This will likely make Gmail easier to load and use, and will also bring new features to the popular open email platform.

Google is also planning to redesign Gmail for the web with plans to integrate some of the features available on its mobile app, to make it more clean and user-friendly.

Google Calendar: And, finally, Gmail users will be able to check Google Calendar directly from the Gmail interface. Clicking on one of the icons in the thin vertical bar in the top right corner appears to pull the respective app in, while still giving the user a clear view of the whole inbox, as seen above. This week, a brand new design was leaked by TechCrunch for the web version of Gmail, along with several new features including Smart Reply from the web client, the ability to snooze emails, and offline support.
