Gmail's major redesign will be available to all in July

Gmail's major redesign will be available to all in July

The schedule that Google lays out for the new Gmail migration for G Suite users starts in July, although the company does not give a specific date. At that time, "any users who've opted out of the new Gmail will be automatically migrated to the new experience, with no option to opt out", the Web giant said.

That transition'll be automatic, but the opt-out option will still be made available for another four weeks after that.

"To prepare you and your organisation for the general availability (GA) launch, the new Gmail is on an EAP and customers can choose to participate (or not) at the domain and organisational unit levels", the G Suite team wrote in a blog post on 4 June.

Among a whole host of new features, Google will also be changing the Gmail layout in the upcoming update.

The new Gmail update will change your account from next month - here's how.

Google and Facebook hit by GDPR complaints
And it can't pre-check a box and ask you to uncheck it if you want to opt out: everything has to be on an opt-in basis. Facebook, which owns Instagram and WhatsApp , said the company has been working to meet the requirements of GDPR.


G-Suite users will have more choice in July.

Google is giving G Suite users as much time as they need to make the transition, but approximately eight weeks after the general availability announcement, anyone who hasn't transitioned will be automatically migrated to the redesign, but with the ability to opt out for another four weeks. Meanwhile, those who have already transitioned to the new Gmail will no longer be able to opt out.

Google's slick new Gmail app is coming to everyone by the end of the year.

Spam appears in users' sent folders even from accounts that haven't been compromised. It plans to have everyone using the new design within a few months. Here's how to use the Gmail improvements, which are ready now.
