since then it has now been revealed what the actual interface would look like. as originally reported by android authority, a sneak peak at the google redesign confirmed features outlined in the original email as well as a complete refresh of ‘tasks’, a to-do list feature built into the gmail window.
it appears the redesign will offer uses three layouts to choose from. a default view that shows attachments in an email, a comfortable view that shows only a paperclip icon of an attachment, and a compact view similar to comfortable but decreasing the vertical whitespace.
google will make the new design available to g suite and gmail users in the coming weeks. an official launch is yet to be confirmed.
