The four new Mail, Chat, Rooms and Meet tabs aim to provide G Suite customers with a complete workplace experience.
The Mail tab will allow users to access their messages, while the Chat tab will host all their messages and allow them to send instant messages to other users in their organization.
Rooms are basically "places to share conversations, upload files and share tasks to help teams work on projects more easily".
Finally, there is the Meet tab that will display all the online meetings you can view and attend.
As part of the update, Google also introduced some new features such as group assignment, enhanced search results that allow you to filter between email and chat results, a Do Not Disturb feature, the Rooms pin feature, and many other. Users will also be able to open and edit a document directly from gmail.
This new integrated workplace approach will allow G Suite users to switch to a video call from a chat directly through the app gmail, create and schedule new tasks and much more. Google has announced for the first time this new redesign gmail last month.
Google will first make the new design available to G Suite users who have enabled the "Chat preferred" setting. The changes for the domains will be available from September 1, 2020.
After September, the company may make the new design available to everyone, not just G Suite customers.
