Gmail Gets a slightly new look

Posted by

Google today updated Gmail by adding a bunch of new features and introduced a slightly new look for Gmail. If you had login to your Gmail account today,  you will see a notification about the new features similar to above image. Although you will not find major difference in the interface, but now Gmail Looks more polished.

The new Gmail “Contact manger” makes Contacts easier to use and works more like the rest of Gmail, also the layout was improved to easily reach “Contacts and Tasks” , now they are located at the top left corner along with a link for “Mail” that takes you back to your inbox.


If you’re not interested in Contacts or Tasks, you can hide these links by clicking near the right edge of “Mail.” Overall, there’s now a smaller header area that puts the first message in your inbox about 16 pixels higher on the screen than before.

Another New Feature Include:

  • Keyboard shortcuts (go to Contacts and hit “?” for the full list)
  • Sort by last name (look under “More actions”)
  • Custom labels for phone numbers and other fields
  • The ability to undo changes you’ve just made
  • Automatic saving
  • Structured name fields, so you can adjust titles, suffixes, and other name components
  • A bigger, more prominent notes field
