Google Redesigns Gmail to Make it a Productivity Hub for Workplace

The new design shows four tabs at the bottom of a user's screen

Google has announced a major overhaul for Gmail that will expand the service beyond emails and become a productivity hub for workplace.

The new design shows four tabs at the bottom of a user’s screen: Mail, Chat, Meet for video calling, and Rooms, CNET reported on Wednesday.

Rooms is similar to ‘Slack rooms’ which lets people on the same team at work collaborate in real time.

“In Google’s version, people can chat, swap files and edit Google Docs without switching tabs,” the report mentioned.

“There’s the task of bringing them together, and the task of making them greater than the sum of their parts,” Javier Soltero, head of Google’s GSuite division for productivity apps, was quoted as saying.
