The goal of the email was to inform these administrators that there would be a new look coming to Gmail.com in the next little while.

"This is perhaps the most useful part of the redesign that makes it easier to schedule meetings, or see when you're free when replying to an email", adds The Verge. Officially unveiling and launching the new look for Gmail at the annual event makes sense, so users may be looking at less than a month before they are able to enjoy the Gmail redesign and new features.

A Google spokesperson has provided the following statement (emphasis included): "We're working on some major updates to Gmail (they're still in draft phase)".

It seems Google has been busy beavering away in the background and plans to release a fresh new update with a Material Design overhaul very soon. Additionally, the new Gmail is reported to have Smart Replies, which, for those who don't know, offer machine-learning generated replies to your emails.

The "More Results" button will appear for users across iOS and Android platforms using the Google app.

According to leaked images, the confidential mode will work even with third-party email clients like "ProtonMail".

New Gmail

Smart replies are coming to Gmail for the web.

Last but not least, Google's added three layout views that'll allow you to change how your mail is displayed.

Perhaps the biggest change to Gmail will be plugins to other Google apps such as Calendar, which would save users the hassle of clicking back and forth between screens. Also, in the aftermath of Facebook data theft scam, it became inevitable for tech companies to highlight and enhance security features.

According to the email, the new design will include "several new features" that will also be made available to regular Gmail accounts.

Google will hold this year's I/O developer conference from May 8 to May 10.

They said Google apps will be better integrated with "easy access" to services like Calendar from within Gmail.
