Gmail's mobile-app users will also be familiar with the new ability to "snooze" emails on the web interface.

Earlier in the week, we learned that Google has a redesign of the Gmail web interface arrivingfor G Suite and regular users in the coming weeks.

The new Gmail will apparently offer users with three layouts to choose from. Like ephemeral stories, these emails will be automatically cleared as soon as they're in the inbox for a specific time period. This will thus help sort out the emails that lay the utmost importance for a given point of time. According to those reports, the app will feature a new design that streamlines access to certain features, like Inbox and Sent Mail.

"We're working on some major updates to Gmail (they're still in draft phase)", a Google spokesperson said in a statement to TechRadar. The Mountain View giant has also admitted that upcoming changes might affect several browser add-ons for Gmail. Also, the new redesigned Gmail might be just around the corner, presently the redesigned Gmail has been seen on the Early Adopters Program.

Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) is in the midst of redesigning its template for Gmail!

While users of G Suite never have their emails scanned for other Gmail users, in 2014, Google updated its terms of service to ensure users had full transparency in the context of Google scanning their email content.

Google is about to update the design of Gmail, according to a new report. Clicking on one of the icons in the thin vertical bar in the top right corner appears to pull the respective app in, while still giving the user a clear view of the whole inbox, as seen above. This includes Smart Replies which are already available on Gmail's mobile counterparts, snoozing messages for a later time and a few new layouts for how much information you'd like to have on the home page itself.

Google is set to host its annual developers conference on May 8 which is when it often unveils new software and services.
