Google has started rolling out a redesigned version of Gmail settings for the iOS platform. The new settings will help users easily manage their Gmail preferences. Additionally, the newest update introduces colourful icons to be used throughout the app. The new Gmail settings for iOS are being rolled out via the latest version 6.0.221002. Let us check out the update in detail.
Redesigned Gmail Settings On iOS: Here’s What’s New
Previously, the Settings menu was present at the bottom of the navigation drawer. Accessing the menu would list “General settings” and all the signed-in accounts for the user. App-level settings such as Theme and Mail Swipe actions were clubbed under the “General” category. All other options could be accessed via “Account” settings, which is further split into sections such as Account, Inbox, Notifications, General, Meet, Nudges, Inbox Tips, and Data usage.
The latest update brings along a Gmail settings redesign on iPhone and iPad, which doesn’t distinguish between “General” and “Accounts” anymore. Opening the Settings menu now lists options for Chat and Meet with the ability to quickly disable the tabs. As mentioned earlier, colourful icons are used throughout to make everything stand out.
