Every day millions of people check their email through the Gmail application from their iPhone, iPad or Android devices. From Google, developers of the app, are aware of this and therefore preparing a redesign incorporating a new theme as they had already announced in July 2018. This update is almost ready and will arrive very soon to iOS and Android.
The redesigned interface for the Gmail mobile application was named Google Material Theme . This design is visually highlighted by a predominantly white color that will leave behind the red bars found in the current version. In this way the application will be more similar to the web version.
Another new feature is the search field, which will be integrated into a bar at the top replacing the magnifying glass icon that we currently have to click on when we want to perform a search among our emails. The three-line button that opens other configurations will remain in the same position, top left.
It should also be noted that now the application will display all mail inboxes on the main screen . These folders, which are the Social, Promotions and Photos folders, will be arranged in the upper part of the screen, clearly differentiated with their blue, green and purple colors respectively.
But if there is one novelty that seems to be highly valued by users it is the way emails are presented . We can see the list of messages with their respective dates and labels but now we can also find changes when an email is opened, especially in tablets, the buttons for replying or forwarding are much more accessible.
In short, it seems that Google is hitting the jackpot on the various updates it is launching in its ecosystem of applications. In the case of the mobile application Gmail with this new theme is also a very positive development because it will make it much more visual and intuitive despite not being a radical change. It is expected that in the coming weeks the launch of the update will be official both in iOS and Android.
