Meet the new Gmail look and feel
In the new Gmail, you can:
Change display density: Change how spacious or compact you want your inbox view. In the top right, click Settings and then Display density. If you choose Default, you'll see a preview of attachments from your inbox.
Smart Reply: Quickly reply to emails using phrases that appear based on the message you've received. Learn how to use Smart Reply.
Bonus: The top and left navigation bars both got a refreshed look. These changes carry over to Drive and Calendar too.
New Gmail Timeline
June 19 2018: The new Gmail opt-in feature will start to appear for Macalester users. It may take several days for this new feature to gradually roll out to all users. For a limited time you’ll be able to opt in to use new Email--and switch back to Classic--before it becomes our standard view sometime in October 2018.
mid-September 2018: Users of class Gmail will be moved to the new Gmail but will be able to opt out.
mid-October 2018: Any users who are still accessing classic Gmail will be transitioned to the new Gmail with no ability to opt out.
