Google is planning to launch a new design with snooze, smart replies, and more for its Gmail web interface soon, according to a report in The Verge.
The report adds that information about the new design for Gmail web was confirmed by the company in an email to G Suite administrators. G Suite is Google’s suite of apps designed for enterprises, which includes Gmail, Google Docs, Google Drive, etc for businesses.
Google has itself confirmed that Gmail for web will be undergoing a major design, which includes a “fresh, clean look for Gmail on the web.”
It also appears that features like Smart Reply, the option to press snooze button on emails will be added to the new Gmail once it launches. Inbox by Gmail already offers such features, and turns emails into more of a to-do list, organising them according to trips, finance, updates, purchases, etc.
Snoozing emails lets you temporarily remove an email from your inbox and have it reappear later, like at a set time or when you arrive at a specific destination.
Users will have to wait on native offline support, which should arrive on the web by June 2018. We’ll keep you posted on when the Gmail on the web changes go live.
