New design integrating Gmail, Chat, Spaces and Meet becomes mandatory.
This has been confirmed by the company asserting that the current new Google design will be the standard experience for users after it was presented at the beginning of the year and the possibility of not adopting it or reversing the change was given… so far.
However this is a possibility that from this very month of November will disappear, so that users who had not yet faced the transition to this new look and those who harbored the alternative of being able to revert the change will be obliged to use the new interface in Gmail only..
The most notable feature of this new look is the integration of Gmail, Chat, Spaces and Meet in the left column of the screen. A remodeling that will also become standard for users who have reactivated the Chat application. Although Google itself recalls that through the settings menu can customize the new interface to include the most relevant applications for each user within this ecosystem.
