Gmail seems to be rolling out a unused UI replace on foldables, including an invaluable navigation rail to the app.
In its persisted push for higher large-screen assistance, Gmail for Android is including every other tweak. A unused sidebar within the app parks the “compose” button to draft a unused electronic mail alongside the facet of the UI instead than in a floating motion button, the place it’s been for years. The base bar could also be moved to the facet, with shortcuts for inbox, chat, and meet all showing there.
This unused UI first made a cameo in Would possibly, however it’s simply now in reality rolling out for the primary occasion.
Apparently, this seems to be best to be had on foldables. We’ve noticed the unused UI on a Google Pixel Crease (app model 2023.06.11.542368486), however Gmail on a Pixel Pill doesn’t display the similar. It’s additionally now not showing on Galaxy Z Crease 4, however Samsung’s taller facet ratio doesn’t cause the pill interface till it’s circled.
The navigation rail Gmail is using right here for foldables has change into habitual all through Google’s alternative pill designs. The Play games Pack, Google House, Pictures, and others have in large part driven what can be a base bar over to the facet to benefit from the backup horizontal field. With Gmail, even though, it’s the entire extra suitable, given the desktop model additionally makes use of a sidebar interface.
Should you’re on a foldable (or pill) and spot this unused UI, tell us within the feedback underneath. You’ll test for Gmail updates within the Play games Pack.
