Google is giving Gmail users a glimpse of design updates that will roll out over the next few months.
Those updates will make the email service look a whole lot like the company’s just launched social network,Google+
In a blog post Thursday, Jason Cornwell, a user experience designer at Google, noted that the company will be making changes to Gmail in an effort to make it cleaner to look at and easier to use.
Gmail isn’t alone in this summer re-do. According to Cornwell, Google Calendar will also get a new look that will be revealed in the next few days.
“This is part of a Google-wide effort to bring you an experience that’s more focused, elastic, and effortless across all of our products,” Cornwell wrote. “The changes are not going to happen all at once. We know that you love and care about Gmail as much as we do, and we’ll be working on these upgrades gradually over the next few months to allow plenty of time to understand and incorporate your feedback into the evolving design.”
Ezra Gottheil, an analyst with Technology Business Research, said it makes sense that Google wants to create a consistent look between its services.
“A consistent look is essential for branding,” he added. “People should know they’re on a Google property. Even someone glancing at someone else’s screen should know they’re on a Google property … it may be that Google+was just the first view of the “new look.”
