How can you get the new Gmail interface?
Well according to Google, the new interface of Gmail is as simple as clicking on the “cog” — settings button on the right side of the interface and selecting “Try the new Gmail”. Although, Google says that the new interface is rolling out on the web starting today, but some features will only go live over the “coming weeks”.
We at TechJuice have checked on multiple accounts and we haven’t got the activation link yet. The rollout is staged and may take a while to reach everyone across the globe because there are billions of Google accounts. So one can easily say it’s not a simple process. As for the iOS and Andriod apps, they are still waiting for the updates with the new features.
