Google experimenting with new look for Gmail

Recently leaked images have shown that Gmail's development team is testing a new layout for the desktop version of the email service. The above screenshot shows just how radically different the proposed interface is, with a more minimalist look modelled on Gmail's mobile app. The new interface will also be responsive, meaning that it will not change across different screen sizes and devices. All emails are positioned in the middle and have gotten some extra width, giving the subject lines breathing room. 

Another screenshot uploaded by Digital Trends shows "fly-in" menus playing a part of the new interface, allowing quick access to different folders. The website also noted that any starred (now pinned) emails will automatically be positioned at the top, and given larger email previews than normal emails. 

Whether this version will see the light of the day is unknown. If so - and given its level of completion - we should expect to see the new Gmail rolled out in the coming weeks.
