Google seems to have just announced the new Gmail. ICYMI I am an avid user. So, I went ahead and started trying out what’s new.

How to Get New Gmail? ๐Ÿ“ง#

Well, that’s pretty simple. Log in to your Gmail account, and click that gear โš™ icon at the top right corner. Then click the Try New Gmail link in there :)

What’s New and the New Gmail? ๐Ÿ”ฅ#

That’s the burning questions, isn’t it? Well, I for one found many new things in there but here’s a summary of a few new features you might wanna read about โ€” and use of course.

๐Ÿ†• Fresh new UI โ€” now you do a lot more without clicking a hundred times.โฒ Snooze feature that used to be in the mobile app is here on the web.

๐ŸŽซ Expiring emails Send an email that expires after a set date. Confidential!

๐Ÿ“จ Only high-priority notification will get through to you on mobile. FTW!

๐Ÿค– Keep, Calendar, Tasks, and third part apps integrations are so much fun.

After 24 Hours of Using New Gmail? ๐Ÿ‘Œ#

It’s been almost 24 hours since I have been trying out the new Gmail and I am pretty impressed. While the new UI is a bit clunky, unfinished, and odd โ€” I know it’ll take me some time to get used to it.

But, I’m definitely enjoying the speed of it all. Also, I use Google Keep and Calendar. Having it integrated so deeply with Gmail is going to make my life so much easier. That’s a welcomed change.

In short, I’m all too excited. What about you?!

Here’re a couple of images for the new and mighty Gmail.

Peace! โœŒ
