new web redesign

Last year, tech giant Google announced its plans for a new layout for Gmail that combines Gmail, Chat, Meet, and Spaces in one space. Now the company will officially roll out the new web redesign for users. In a recent post over at Google Workspace Updates, Google announced the rollout plan of Gmail’s new integrated view. 

Google Will Launch the New Web Redesign ‘Integrated View’ Next Week 

According to the announcement, Google Workspace users will be able to try out the new web redesign called integrated view starting February 8. This will be opt-in based and users can revert back to the classic Gmail layout anytime from within settings. Come April, Google will make the new layout the default option for everyone, but would still allow users to revert back to classic Gmail. 

However, by the end of Q2 2022, the new web redesign will become the standard experience for Gmail, with no option to switch back to the old layout. “When enabled, the new navigation menu allows you to easily switch between your inbox, important conversations, and join meetings without having to switch between tabs or open a new window,” Google’s blog post notes.

Google Apps Will Now Have Their Own Screens 

The new integrated view makes it easier for Workspace users to access Google’s messaging tools from a single screen. The left sidebar features prominent buttons for Gmail, Chat, Spaces, and Meet, with the current tab highlighted with a blue color. These applications now have their own screens and no longer open in a new tab or in a floating window. Google states in the coming months, users will also be able to see email and chat results in Gmail’s search bar, making it more manageable to look up things without having to switch to the specific product tab.

The new integrated view for Gmail will be available to Google Workspace Business Starter, Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Essentials, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, Education Fundamentals, Education Plus, Frontline, and Nonprofits, as well as G Suite Basic and Business customers.
