Gmail users are about to see some big changes coming to their email accounts.
The hugely popular service is set for a major revamp with new features and redesign expected to launch in the coming weeks.
The update looks likely to bring a cleaner and less cluttered look for Gmail on the web along with the arrival of things such as Smart Reply which instantly allows users to select from three automatic responses based on what’s in the original message.
There could also be the option to snooze conversations allowing users to temporarily delete emails from their inbox until a set time.
There’s currently no word on a release date for this new Gmail refresh but Google has confirmed the upgrade is being tested.
In a statement to The Verge, Google revealed:“We’re working on some major updates to Gmail (they’re still in draft phase).
“We need a bit more time to compose ourselves, so can’t share anything yet—archive this for now, and we’ll let you know when it’s time to hit send.”
Like most of Google’s services, Gmail has seen a meteoric rise to success with the email platform now thought to have over 1.2billion users worldwide.
Last year the company announced it was finally upgrading the attachment function for its email service, which now allow users to receive messages with attachments up to 50MB.
The upgrade means you’ll be able to get more photos, files or other downloads with your email than ever before.
However sadly the upgrade doesn’t extend to sending bigger attachments, with that limit still capped at 25MB for now.
This latest Gmail upgrade comes as Google is expected to announce more big news in the coming weeks.
The search giant’s I/O conference takes place from May 8th to 10th at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California.
I/O brings together developers from around the globe for talks, hands-on learning with Google experts, and a first look at Google’s latest developer products.
The California-based company could also showcase updates to Google Chrome, Google Photos, Android Wear, Google Home, and more.
Last year, it focused on Google Assistant, Google Photos and standalone DayDream VR headsets.
