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? 📧#

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

What’s New and the New Gmail? 🔥#

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 — and use of course.

🆕 Fresh new UI — now you do a lot more without clicking a hundred times.⏲ Snooze feature that used to be in the mobile app is here on the web.

🤖 Keep, Calendar, Tasks, and third part apps integrations are so much fun.

After 24 Hours of Using New Gmail? 👌#

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 — 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! ✌
