The Web search giant accidentally slipped out a video on YouTube that gives a preview of the upcoming changes in its popular email service with Jason Cornwell (Gmail’s user experience designer) sharing a presentation.
The video, which was immediately pulled out and has since then been marked private, revealed that the new Gmail will feature new changes like a cleaner design, updated search box that includes advanced options, new interface for conversations and high-resolution themes.
Cornwell reveals in the video, “We’ve completely redesigned the look and feel of Gmail to make it as clean, simple, and intuitive as possible.”
The new user interface will also reportedly automatically fit in any window and will boast of cleaner, simpler, and intuitive look. It is also likely to allow users to resize the chat and label areas. The revamped Gmail will also let email threads in Gmail to include profile pictures.
Earlier in July this year, Google had rolled out a ‘preview theme’ for Gmail, offering users a clutter-free and focussed look. Google in its official Gmail Blog had then revealed, the idea was to “strip out unnecessary clutter and make Gmail as beautiful as it is powerful.”
