Victoria, B.C. — In an email to partners and G-Suite administrators earlier this week, Google shared plans to launch a new Gmail web interface soon.
Google described the new interface as “a fresh, clean look for Gmail on the web” with some exciting additions like “Smart Reply on the web, just like on mobile.”
Shift, a desktop built by the team at Redbrick, has released exactly what the new designs will look like within Shift, allowing Gmail customers to access all of the new features and easily switch between multiple Mail, Calendar and Drive accounts.
The Compose button, and right-hand views for Calendar, Keep, and other Google apps are displayed inside Shift, which will handle the multiple account matrix for Gmail customers with several accounts, as well as third-party apps and extensions like Slack, WhatsApp, Trello, Evernote, Grammarly, LastPass, and others.
“All of the right-hand views for Google Apps will be similar to a mobile view, and easier for at-a-glance Calendar view when writing an email and trying to plan a meeting at the same time. For the full week or month view, Shift offers Gmail customers an easy way to toggle between multiple Mail and Calendar views and accounts, ” said Director of Product, Michael Foucher.
The ability to “snooze” emails and have them returned to your inbox later is another nice addition. Many Gmail users will appreciate having that functionality built right in. Another new Gmail feature, Offline Support, will give Shift customers much more flexibility when looking to get stuff done while off the grid.
