Have you switched to the new gmail version?

Asked by janbb (63032points) October 8th, 2018

If so, do you like it? I just turned on the default new version and find it distracting. I didn’t see a way to preview the other alternatives they are offering. Anyone know if there is a way to switch among them and decide? What was your take on it?

Found how to get back to the classic version from New Coke and now they both look weird!

I was reverting to the old version but finally I was assimilated. Way too carnival-looking, like a Wonderbread package. I went into themes and chose solid light blue and it’s tolerable. I’m getting used to it.

Yeah – it hurt my eyes. Maybe I’ll look at it again and maybe not.

It takes longer to load. I don’t like it.

It was shoved down my throat without my permission.

@Caravanfan If you click on the asterisk looking icon on the top right, you can revert to the old version or choose another.

I hope I never find out what y’all are talking about…

“Go back to classic Gmail” disappears eventually. That’s what I meant by “I was assimilated.”

And I’m not even a Star Trek fan.

I looked at it, thought “clown town” and went back to the old ways.
