Gmail Redesign for iOS Rolling Out Starting Today

Google today announced that its mobile apps for Android and iOS are gaining a new look to bring them in line with the design changes and new features that were previously made available on the web.

With the updated version of Gmail for iOS, attachments like photos can be viewed without opening or scrolling through a conversation.


There are clear alerts when an incoming email looks suspicious, and Google has made it easier to switch between personal and work accounts.

Google says the redesign that's rolling out to iOS and Android users "in the coming weeks" is part of a larger effort to make its G Suite products look and act like a family of products, all with Google's Material Theme.

Web apps like Gmail, Drive, Calendar, Docs, and Sites have already been updated with the redesign, and later this year, additional mobile apps will be revamped.

I just want Inbox to continue existing, I don't care about Gmail anymore.

I bet it still won’t be optimized for the 11” iPad Pro.

My eyes are burning from all of the white. Please let there be a dark mode in the app at least.

I don't do business with a company where a person's personal information (and other usage) is mined and sold for company profit, no matter how nice their family of products may look.

So why even comment?


Pot calling the kettle...?

Could easily ask you the same thing, but forums are for sharing opinions. Threads are like guideposts. They help steer a discussion, but they don’t act like solid walls.

There's always at least one of these comments in a Google related thread. And they are always wrong on how Google makes its money.

That's your choice but Google do make have some great apps and products. I have no issue with them having my data, I consider it a fair trade and I go into it with eyes wide open. They don't have my bank card and pin number, they have a limited amount of info which I couldn't care less if they have, use, sell or whatever. People love to say how evil Google is with "you are the product" claims, so what? Show me someone who has signed up to a Google product and had something hideous happen because of it.

On a different note it's a shame that they've increased pricing by 20% for GSuite users today.

Your view is flawed... With digital information you not only need to have a historical view of what Google as done with the data you've given to them, but a future view of what they may do with that data. Remember, digital information never degrades or rots and lasts forever. Additionally, Google owns the information you've uploaded so even if you think Google is great today you may not think so in 10 or 20 years when Google and its data is now owned by some company using your data for reasons you don't like.

If you don't give a company a reason to exploit your data (i.e. don't give them the data to exploit) they can never disappoint you.

Can you enlighten the group on how Alphabet makes its money?

As Alphabet is very much aware that targeted advertising based on user data is their primary revenue source...


We generate revenues primarily by delivering both performance advertising and brand advertising.

You might as well invite strangers to conference in on your phone calls, while you're at it.


That’s why I love my iPhone. It saves me the time of inviting the strangers and just lets them listen to my real world conversations at their leisure.

Note: I’m just being snarky cause the timing of this comment was funny to me. I don’t think any tech company is innocent and I don’t think any are malicious enough to tank their stock either. The real issue with these companies having data is hacks and bugs and Apple has proven to be immune to neither.
