Google's reportedly refurbishing the user interface of Gmail-for-desktop, and Geek has shared a few screenshots of the new screen-look under testing. The interface displayed on these screenshots accommodate more white space, has no new tab feature, holds seriously less clutter, and a new hamburger menu at the left hides the many labels and categories to go easy on the visual, and a button on the lower right includes actions that a user may perform - like composing a new mail, or like setting a reminder.
The Hangouts menu is pinned at the top right with a contacts drop-down, while a huge rectangular search-box rules the header. There are no more stars, but 'pins' instead, and user can 'Snooze' a particular email for later reminder.
These leaked screenshots are similar to Google's earlier Gmail-for-mobile interface overhaul. Google has never really tweaked a major interface revamp since the current template was launched in 2011, and while this new interface may see light soon, the company has not put down a definite date as yet. One may expect an exhibition at the Google I/O event coming June though.
