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.
