Gmail's new design will be available from February 8, 2022, I tried to summarize the changes and target audience

It was announced that the new design of Gmail for the web will be available from Tuesday, February 8, 2022. At the same time, a screenshot of the new design was published on Google's official blog, so I summarized the changes.

Google Workspace Updates: New integrated view for Gmail features email, Google Meet, Google Chat and Spaces in one place

The main changes in the new design are 'change of color scheme' and 'addition of new sidebar'. First of all, focusing on the change of color scheme, in the conventional Gmail, the background color was unified to white, and the new mail creation button and the selected folder were emphasized in red ...

The new design of Gmail incorporates gray as the background color and the emphasis color has also been changed to blue. In addition, the yellow mark indicating 'important email' has disappeared.

In the conventional Gmail (left), 'mail folder', 'chat screen', 'Google Meet menu', etc. are lined up in a vertical row, and the display area of each is narrowed. The newly designed Gmail (right) has a sidebar with buttons to access 'Mail', 'Chat', 'Saces', and 'Meet' on the left side of the screen, allowing you to browse mail folders and label lists in a large space. I am.

According to Google, the new design will be available from Tuesday, February 8, 2022, and target users will be able to activate the new design from the following notification of availability of the new design. The new design will become the standard design in April 2022, and the old design will be unavailable by the end of the second quarter of 2022 (April-June).

In addition, the new design of Gmail is scheduled to be applied to the following users of Google services.

・ Google Workspace Business Starter
・ Google Workspace Business Standard
・ Google Workspace Business Plus
・ Google Workspace Enterprise Essentials
・ Google Workspace Enterprise Standard
・ Google Workspace Enterprise Plus
・ Google Workspace Education Fundamentals
・ Google Workspace Education Plus
・ Google Workspace Frontline
・ Google Workspace Nonprofits (G Suite Basic and Business customers)

In addition, as a result of inquiring Google from overseas media The Verge 'whether it also applies to free users', it was answered that free users are not eligible, saying that 'it will be available only with the above account'. That is.
