LONDON: Google has revealed a big upcoming refresh for Gmail on the web.
As first reported by The Verge, the upgrade was revealed in a message from Google to administrators of G Suite accounts – G Suite being the suite of Google services that organizations can use on their own web domains, rather than Google’s.
The message stated that the changes would be coming to consumer Gmail accounts, as well as G Suite accounts.
Google said the refresh would include not only a “fresh, clean look for Gmail on the web,” but also easy ways to access other Google services, such as Google Calendar, from the Gmail web app.
The company recently started winding down its Chrome apps for all platforms but Google’s own Chrome OS. Windows, Mac and Linux users are now being encouraged to instead use Google’s web apps, and it’s only logical that those interfaces are now getting upgraded to include the functionality that would otherwise be lost.
