Gmail For Android Updated With Card-Style Layout
Google’s Gmail application for Android has been updated with a new design which will bring Google’s currently preferred “card style” user interface within the app’s Conversation View. The new layout, which Google has popularized it through its Google Now search application, has become the new go-to design paradigm at Google, getting across other Google products and services, including Google Drive, the new Google Wallet apps, Maps, Google+ and elsewhere.
In new Gmail, the cards will be used to better highlight multi-person, threaded messages in the app’s “Conversation view,” allowing for a “new, cleaner design,” states the company in a post on Google+ this afternoon.
In addition, the app will include other few design changes, like checkmarks for multiple message selection which makes it easier to see which emails you’re about to delete, archive or move. The app will also alert you in your inbox if account sync is turned off for some reason, just a cool feature to help keep you from missing messages.
The new update is expected to roll out in stages, so if you haven’t got it yet just be patient. You will get it in some hours.
