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? πŸ“§#

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

What’s New and the New Gmail? πŸ”₯#

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 β€” and use of course.

πŸ†• Fresh new UI β€” 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.

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

πŸ‘‰ Google’s “Nudge” will now “nudge” you to follow up and respond.

πŸ“¨ Only high-priority notification will get through to you on mobile. FTW!

πŸ€– Keep, Calendar, Tasks, and third part apps integrations are so much fun.

After 24 Hours of Using New Gmail? πŸ‘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 β€” 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! ✌
