In 2014, Google debuted its new look – known as Material Design and now Material Theme. Since then, the company’s applications and services, both in the mobile and web versions, have been gradually gaining new face in a way that complies with this design pattern.
The Gmail app for smartphones had already won its version in the Material Theme. But now it gets a new look. It is not radically different from what it had before, but with interesting changes. To begin with, the red bar at the top of the interface has disappeared. This brings something much whiter than before. And it has a search text box on top that resembles Google’s search engine.
New design arrives for the Gmail app on Android and iOS versions over the next few weeks.
To create your new messages, it leaves the round and red icon in the lower right corner and enter a white, circular button with a colored “+” sign. As it already exists in other Google applications like Fit, Gmail for web. To switch accounts, you no longer need to access the menu on the left side. There is a shortcut to this already on the home screen, at the top right.
Perhaps the most notable feature is the existence of a preview of the attached files in the emails you receive. One can remove this from the view, thus the avatars of the senders, for those who prefer a more compact presentation.
The new design arrives for the Gmail app on the Android and iOS versions over the next few weeks. And we can expect that the other Google applications will win the Material Theme by the end of this year.
