If you'd like to check the new UI out now, you can opt into the Early Adopter Program simply by hitting the settings button in your inbox and selecting "Try the new Gmail".

The company is now planning to move users over to the new Gmail design so that it can phase out the old design entirely.

Gmail users may have waited for the new redesign.

G Suite Admins will have a few options for their users which are listed below and will be available in the Admin console.

Google's slick new Gmail app is coming to everyone by the end of the year. It also comes with new features such as email snoozing, nudging, and a new security feature called confidential mode, which allows a user to attach an expiry date to a sensitive email or revoke it entirely.

October - Everyone will now be using the new version, with Google officially retiring the old version.

Today, Google posted its schedule for rolling out the redesigned Gmail experience to G Suite users. During this time and through August, users will still have the ability to opt out of the update. They can hold off for another four weeks, but after that, everyone will be able to opt in. The default version of the design, which is joined by "comfortable" and "compact" options, makes certain things like attachments stand out better. Just how soon it does this for regular Gmail users remains to be seen. 8 weeks after that, anyone who hasn't done that will be automatically transitioned to the new Gmail service, with a 4 week period to opt out (but only during that period.).
