With the new update, Gmail has the potential to become an all-in-one productivity suite. The email service stands apart from any other rival. Javier Soltero, Vice President at Google said, “One thing we’ve heard again and again from our users is how switching between apps interrupts their flow—and their focus. That’s why in this new integrated experience, we’ve been thoughtful about how to help you work more fluidly.”
Gmail will now offer an integrated experience between Meet, Chat, Drive, Docs/Sheets/Slides, Rooms, and Tasks. You can share and collaborate on documents in real-time while having a live video chat. The tech firm is offering a revolutionary experience which should be helpful for everyone, right from big businesses to amateur teams.
After implementing these changes, Google will re-label the Gmail app as an integrated workspace. The fundamental changes will help the users stick around. Google has confirmed that these changes will reflect on Android and iOS apps soon. The major overhaul will allow users to seamlessly work and collaborate with each other.
Google has recently rolled out dark mode in Gmail for Android and iOS. The dark mode will allow users to conserve a bit of battery life and the phone’s screen will become easier on the eyes. Google first added the dark mode to Android in 2019 as a theme but it was limited to a set of users. The theme didn’t show up everywhere. The dark mode is much more widespread now, apps are using it as default.
