Internet search engine giant Google is reportedly working on a new design for its popular mailing service Gmail. The image showing the UI of the new layout has also leaked online which basically reveals what the new email client will look like.
If you take a look at the leaked image, you will find that Google is in fact trying to overhaul the Gmail UI massively. It will be not even close to how Gmail looked when it was first launched. Moreover, you will see that the design language is more inclined towards the Google+ UI.
According to Geek, the supposed changes are aimed at offering mobile-like experience. Thus you can see in the image, the tabs, which were introduced last year, have completely been taken out of the new UI. Taking its place is the new fly-in menu on the left side. It also looks more cleaner than the current Gmail look and another noticeable change is the collapsible drawer for Hangouts.
The images further shows email composing and reminder creation bubbles located at the bottom right of the inbox. There's a new pinned email system, which will keep important emails right at the top, and sounds like a much better implementation than "stars". A red "+" icon in the lower-right corner represents a new pop-up menu for composing new messages and adding new reminders into Gmail.
Also a new slide-in menu on the left-hand side of the inbox which will have all the labels like inbox, sent mail, trash, drafts, spams and so on.
The new Gmail redesign might take some time to reach its users. As of now, these features are in testing phase. But most of the reports online say that it will possibly be showcased or launched at the Google I/O event next month.
