There are numerous new things on Gmail's new web interface. We'll step through each of them below.
GoogleGoogle's Gmail is getting its biggest refresh in years, the search giant announced in a blog post on Wednesday morning. You can try it all out by clicking "Try the new Gmail" under settings in your Gmail account.
That means a shiny new look, sure, but also some useful-sounding new features. The updates are planned for Gmail on the web as well as for Google's Gmail apps for smartphones and tablets. Some of those updates appear to be most useful for businesses, with others designed for consumers.
We had an inkling these updates were coming. Screenshots obtained earlier this month by The Verge and Android Authority hinted at the news. Now it's official, and we get our best look yet.
Here's a look at the new Gmail on web and mobile:

The Nudging feature is also a reminder mechanism, except it displays the reminder in text next to the email if you haven't responded to it in a few days.

There are two types of Nudging notifications: inbound and outbound. You'll see a notification if you haven't responded to an email in two to three days or if you're expecting a response to an email and the recipient hasn't responded.
This seems as if it could be an ineffective (and annoying) feature if it notified you about every email you hadn't responded to in a few days. A Google representative told Business Insider that Nudging used artificial intelligence to determine when the notifications were necessary by considering things like email participants and content.

Attachments are accessible without going into the email, since they show up as clickable rounded icons under the subject. It's designed to make it easier to find important files in your inbox.

If you send an email in confidential mode, the recipient is informed about the expiration date in the email. The message disappears after the allotted time — no forwarding, downloading, or copying the contents after that.

If you want to try it, click "Try the new Gmail" under Settings in the top right. Businesses can opt in for the new Gmail, too, by joining the Google G Suite Early Access Program.

Confidential mode, Nudging, unsubscribe suggestions, and high-priority notifications are set to roll out in the next few weeks, but other features (hover, side panel, attachment icons, Snooze, Smart Reply) are available on Wednesday, April 25, to anyone who opts in.
