Google is said to be working on a brand new designs for the Android Gmail app. Folks at Android Police have leaked images of the new designs, which were apparently found in a Google I/O session video.
The images show Gmail app sporting a brand new navigation drawer. As you can see in the image the navigation drawer almost covers the entire screen. Moving on, you will see three buttons on the top-left and the bottom panel which is present in the current version has been removed. As for the buttons that use to be there in the bottom panel have been repositioned for better space management. The compose, search and overflow buttons are on the top.
Coming back to navigation drawer, it will allow users to easily switch between "Inbox" and "Priority Inbox". What this does is you will have easy access to All Labels. In the current version users will have to take the trouble of going to the "All Labels" screen (separate).
The screen shots does not reveal anything about the refresh button or the Drafts and Junk sections. Following the image leak, The Next Web reports the web version of the email service will also be getting a major update. Apparently Google is in plans to add five tabs to categories emails. These categories include Main, Social, Offers, Notifications, and Forums.
Users will be able to access mails from friends, family or office for that matter, from the Main section. The social section will include emails from social media sides such as Facebook, twitter or Youtube. Offers section as the name suggests will include mails from online retail stores and others. Notifications section will contain impotent mails such reservations alerts, email about bill payments and so on. Forums section will include emails associated with any mailing lists or forums that you have enrolled for. Google were't kidding when they said, they are now focusing on improving user experience for their services.
