Gmail gets touched up with a fresh new look

Recently we told you there may be a native Gmail app on route to iOS users, and the search engine giant continues to get busy with a recent update to its Google+ app for Android. Now we can tell you that Gmail gets touched up with a fresh new look.

The free service from Google has been given a nice face lift that is easier on the eye with less clutter. An article on The Economic Times is reporting there are now threaded conversations with new themes and better search. Users will get the update in the coming days, and a tab will appear in the bottom right hand corner of the screen inviting you to switch.

Eventually the change will happen automatically but you can get the new look Gmail now it the switch is available. Jason Cornwell of Google said in a blog post “We’re excited to finally share Gmail’s new look with you”.

There is more information available how Google decide what ads users see, with location and search history used. Users can always use the Ads Preference Manager tools to tweak the system to their own tastes. The streamlined conversation view where you can see profile images for your contacts now makes the e-mail thread look similar to an instant messaging conversation.

Depending on your screen size and resolution the density of the text automatically adjusts to make it easier on the eye. You are also met with a message on your inbox that says Google Buzz is going away, but any of your posts are yours to keep.
