Gmail has had the same look since its release back in 2004, and while it’s friendly and familiar – it’s getting a bit aged…. At least, Google thought so! Google just announced that Gmail will be receiving a facelift in the next few weeks in order to “remove the clutter and make it as beautiful as it is powerful“. And Gmail isn’t alone, Google Calendar will also be getting a new skin in “the next few days.” If you want to get sneak peek and checkout the new look – just follow the steps in today’s groovyPost.
Login to your Gmail. At the top-right of your Gmail window, Click the options menu (wrench) and Click Mail settings.
From the settings tabs, Select Themes. Now go down and Click either of the Preview themes. They are called:
- Preview (Dense) – aka condensed
Tip: Dense is better for small screens.
As soon as you Click either of the themes it should instantly apply. Keep in mind that this is just a preview, so there may be a few changes still before the theme becomes the new default.
Here’s what the inbox looks like, and below is what “message view” in opened emails will look like.
Huh… Is it just me or does this new UI look EXACTLY like Goole+?
