[Video] GMail Unveils Impressive Update: New Search Features, Backgrounds and Templates


A fairly extensive GMail update is launching soon. While the update probably won't be blowing anyone's brains, it does have a few really nice and needed features we think you'll like. Here are a few of the most notable new features:

  • GMail now automatically adapts to fit your screen size – so if you want to minimize your browser, you can still see your entire inbox.
  • You can choose different viewing templates like "comfortable," cozy," and "compact" which spaces out the emails according to your preferences.
  • You can hide the tabs on the side that feature labels and chat.
  • There are a bunch of new themes (ie pictures) you can set as the background to your email text
  • Searching function has been completely revamped: you can now search via sender, recipient, subject, keyword and date. This will be an incredibly useful feature for those who store their emails indefinitely but have a hard time searching for exactly the email they need.

Overall, we're most excited about the new search functions, especially since we use our GMail as a go-to database for everything we've ever sent to anyone ever. Nice work, Google!

UPDATE: Our friend Michael Dunstheimer over at has posted a few screenshots and video of the new GMail in action:
