Gmail web revamp leaks w/ rounded design, sidebar widgets, Google Tasks, and more

Glowing Gmail icon

Gmail for the web is getting a fresh redesign that will bring it closer to what its most recent Gmail for mobile app looks like.

All of these new features including Gmail's new interface will be accessible for G Suite customers and personal Gmail account holders.

Gmail is also taking some of its mobile-only features to the web, such as smart replies.

One thing shown that we weren't previously expecting is a new sidebar found on the far right.

The update will hit the Early Adopter Program for both regular Gmail and G Suite users within the next few weeks and touts easy access to G Suite apps from directly within Gmail. Now, Google is giving us all a new Gmail design. The default setup will showcase things like photos, documents, and other items that are attached to message, a comfortable option will remove these attachment highlights, and compact mode will show more emails on your screen at once.

Use other G Suite apps inside your inbox. Smart replies suggested users with quick responses to messages so as to save time while you're occupied with something else. Google has meanwhile kept mum about the new features, requesting for a bit more time to compose themselves before they share anything. That means you'll be able to draft and read some emails without an internet connection.

Leafs' Kadri suspended 3 games for hit on Bruins' Wingels
Wingels is being evaluated after taking the hit, Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy told reporters. "I was already committed to the hit". The loss of Kadri for three games is a big blow to a Maple Leafs team that dropped Game 1 by a score of 5-1.

In a statement, Google did not confirm specific changes but did acknowledge that it's working on an update to its email service.

We didn't overlook the part where emails self-destruct in the Gmail redesign, don't worry.

It's unclear whether this feature will only be available to Gmail users, or if people who use Gmail with non-Gmail accounts will also be able to send disappearing messages.

According to the tipster who spilled the news to TechCrunch, there's already a help page for the feature but it's now not populated with any information - suggesting that the self-destructing emails of the new Gmail design is under development but not ready for release at this point in time.

The Gmail overhaul, apart from a complete redesign, will also pack a handful of modern features you usually find on third-party clients.
