Google has begun the rollout of the new integrated Gmail view for users who have turned on Chat. The new interface puts a bar down the left-hand side of your Gmail inbox to quickly access other Google services such as Chat, Spaces, and Meet.

To get the new interface, head to your Gmail settings (press See all settings from the drop-down) and then in the Chat and Meet tab, ensure Google Chat is selected as the Chat option, then press save changes. Once you’ve turned chat on, you’ll see Chat, Spaces, and Meet down the left-hand side of Gmail. To get the new interface, press the settings cog for the drop-down menu and press Try out the new Gmail view.

Immediately, you’ll notice the use of the much cleaner Material 3 interface. The new interface also leverages search chips that make it a lot easier to find the email you are looking for. To access the chips, just type a query in the search field and above the results the search chips will let you filter by sender, recipient, and more.

If you don’t like the new Gmail interface, as some inevitably won’t, Google will keep the option for you to revert to the previous version. Also, you’ll be able to go to the settings drop-down and customize which items you have in the sidebar, so you can disable the things you don’t use.

Switch to ProtonMail while you still have some dignity left. I'm so glad I quit 99% of all Google services short of YouTube. The reason was these constant redesigns, not committing to new ideas, not listening to feedback at all. Google is just changing the UI every once in a while for the sake of change with zero improvements to usability, often usability gets worse.

I am not using any of Google service either (only youtube every once in a while and without signing in). I am using Fastmail as my email provider.

Regarding the handling of Google Play apps, I find it particularly difficult to use these days.:mad:📱

Note: The option to switch to the new Gmail design may not be available for all users just yet.

I don't think it's available in perfect condition yet.

I have two email accts and gmail is one of them. .

I like the new format, I'm not going to lie. It's neater and less cluttered and doesn't have that stupid "something's not right" message in yellow by the Hangouts tab (which ain't there no more, thank goodness).

Def. not a Google fan but it's pretty nice. But this is personal taste, of course.

Edit: it seems you can go back to the old view in gmail settings, it seems. But I'm keeping the new view settings here.

Me too. I love how Gmail did evolve.
