Google accidentally leaked a video on Thursday showing off Gmail’s latest design features expected to be rolled out in the next few months.
The video was posted to Google’s official YouTube account that highlighted an array of new design updates, but it was later pulled down by the company. A Google representative confirmed to CNet that it wasn’t supposed to be seen yet.
However, some YouTube users were quick to copy the video and repost the clip for all to see.
The new design aims to make the Gmail experience more customized and intuitive for users, encouraging them to make it as clean and simple as they want. The page will finally be adjustable to fit any size window and users can display specific size density, ranging from “comfortable” to “cozy” and “compact.” [Read: Is Google Messing with Your Mind?]
The labels and chat area on the left side of the Gmail screen will also be getting an update so users can adjust their size. For example, those who prefer to chat over making labels for their emails can widen the section so more of their contacts show on the screen.
Email exchanges in Gmail have also been redesigned to improve visibility and make it feel like you’re having a real conversation with someone. The feature closely resembles Facebook as Gmail profile pictures accompany the text of each email message.
Google has also added a variety of new themes with new high-resolution images.
