Google's Gmail redesign is starting to roll out to users on Android and iOS following its massive overhaul on web a year ago.

As for why Google is making such a big change to the look and feel of one of its biggest apps, the company notes the overhaul is a long time coming, and is meant to bring the Gmail app up to date with the rest of its services.

Google has not just been tweaking the design of Gmail but has also introduced array of new features since a year ago. Similar to the desktop version, Ray said, "Attachment chips help you take action even quicker because now you can see and click attachments in your inbox before ever opening a thread". Tapping on the profile photo will show option for adding work accounts as well on the Gmail app, and also managing or switching between these accounts.

The update is part of a larger effort to make G Suite look more like a family of products that sport the Google Material Theme - like Google's default Android apps - with ease-of-use in mind, the company says. As we already have been used to the newer web client of Gmail, the mobile experience will most likely be the same with all the latest design changes. Firstly, the persistent Red bar on the top has been removed, which is now replaced by a persistent search bar, which is in White and looks much cleaner.

The fresh design doesn't really bring in a lot of new features. In its current format, Gmail on a mobile device is straightforward but not ideal. It's also easier to switch between personal and work accounts, so you can access all of your emails without breaking a sweat. It is placed at the upper right-hand side of the window placed within the search bar which now also incorporates the hamburger menu.

The changes are mostly visual tweaks - Google previously added a ton of new features when it rolled out its big Gmail update previous year - but there are a few important changes coming to the new app. "And just like on the web, you'll get big, red warnings to alert you when something looks phish-y".

With this change, new emails will turn the inbox label into an eye-catching red, while intelligent features like a nudge and smart reply appear in shades of orange and blue respectively.

The app will automatically "nudge" messages that you haven't replied to, bumping them back to the top of your inbox if you haven't replied for a few days, and includes Smart Reply (which suggests responses to emails) and Smart Compose (which suggests ways to complete the sentence you're now writing).
