Ok, it may not be a free new vehicle, but on Monday, Google announced that its massively updated new Gmail would launch to general availability (GA) in July. The last option will be the default setting.
Eight weeks after general availability, so sometime in September, all users will be migrated automatically but can still opt out for another four weeks. Once those four weeks are up, G Suite users will no longer have the ability to switch back and forth between the new and old designs.
Three months after July, around October, anyone who opted out of the new Gmail will be bumped across once again and the choice to opt out disappears. But 12 weeks after the July GA rollout, Gmail users will have to accept new Gmail as their email lord and savior.
Considering most people seem to like the new interface, Google has chose to move everyone to the latest version starting in July.
This can house Google Calendar, Google Keep and Google Tasks all in an easily-accessed bar. And YOU get new Gmail! Plus, Google also bolstered Gmail's offline capabilities, letting you search, write, respond, delete, or archive up to 90 days of messages without an active connection.
Google plans to provide further transitions in details in July but is encouraging admins to start testing it with users now.
