Google Gmail Goes for a Revamp; Leaks Reveal Awesome Changes

May 27, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Although Google has not officially announced any design changes for its email service, a new design has been leaked and surfaced on the web. That could mean that Gmail users will soon get a redesigned mail service.

Looking at the leaked screenshots, we have noticed a new three line button on the top left, which is said to be ‘hamburger’, a slide out menu. Once you tap this button, it will show labels and categories.

The original bottom bar, which include functions such as compose and search, have been moved to the top.


The key feature of the new Gmail will be its default tabs, which would organize your emails between five categories. These categories will be named Primary, Social, Promotions, Forums, and Notifications.

In the Primary section, users will get emails from their friends and family members. Meanwhile, the Social category will contain messages relating to social media, including emails from Zynga, Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, and Google+.

Important emails and alerts will be included under Notifications. These labels seem to be a nice organization method, which will filter and label the emails we receive.

However, Google has not confirmed the new redesigned Gmail service. But if it the leaks turn out to be true, users could expect to play with these features very soon.
