Google has “helpfully” switched everyone over to the new Gmail interface. While we really, really like the new interface, we understand that some may prefer the older interface. At this point, you can still switch back by using the setting menu. According to the release calendar, as of October 16th, everyone will be switched to the new interface permanently.
Some of the features that we really like about the new interface:
- access to Calendar on a side panel
- access to Tasks on a side panel
- Smart replies
- cleaner interface
- Display density (more control over how much space email takes up)
- Follow up reminder
