Google is on fire now days! With the launch of Google+, it takes us to the new way of social media. Also google had redesigned the google calendar and now its time for Gmail to redesigned his look. Before few months back Google Introduces Google Instant For Faster Searches and now with turn gmail with smarter view.
Google has released a preview of what the real new Gmail will look like, including themes that you can test out today. Google gave users a sneak peek of its “Preview” and “Preview (Dense)” themes.
It looks like Google is running with the UI from Google+ and incorporating it into Gmail as well. Gmail adopted the Google+ minimalist, orange and gray aesthetic, though it’s not an identical aesthetic — the buttons for instance are larger.
The new Gmail has a cleaner, more refined look. The clean look is more spread out than the classic Gmail interface, basking in white space that makes it easier to read.
According to Google’s official Gmail Blog,
The idea was to “strip out unnecessary clutter and make Gmail as beautiful as it is powerful.” It’s all part of Google’s drive for a better experience that it calls “more focused, elastic and effortless” across each of its products.
The Preview theme, which spreads information out over more space and so must be the theme designed for larger screens, spreads things out a little too much. The eye doesn’t naturally scan over emails in the inbox because the whitespace between each message is a little too big for information that is provided in only one-line increments. The spacing works for Google+ because the items are generally a paragraph or more in length.
Google’s calling these two preview themes “a sort of sneak peek” because it plans to make this design a permanent part of Gmail’s new interface.

You can find lot many good things in new look, but there are some rough edges as well. Some lab futures may look like a stranger in new look. Google is planning to fix those issues and then roll out the new gmail look.
It’s unclear when the new Gmail interface will take over, but until then, you can start using it with this trick.
If you don’t like either of these themes, all the other themes are still there, or you can simply stick with what you have now. I think this is a big improvement, making Gmail easier to read and more efficient to use.
