I came across this beautiful light Gmail design:

Does anyone know if this was just an experiment or will this be rolling out someday?

Because my Gmail looks currently like this (every email has a dark background and everything is tight together in general, many spacer lines, etc.):

I believe that this is how it will be since Gmail looks like that for me for a few weeks already. I really love the new design!

All the best, AOVCrystals

    Awesome! Looking forward to it :) – Cyman May 4 at 17:18
  • Can't wait to finally get my hands on the new design...looking at the current design feels just wrong. I am used to Inbox, so using the current Gmail was a huge downgrade for me – Cyman May 14 at 18:32
  • Is it perhaps possible to invite others to activate the new design (like it is sometimes possible with beta versions)? – Cyman May 14 at 18:33

Just in case you haven't already... go to the settings cog and select Themes, then be sure you have the Default selected.

That should get you the newest version available.

    Thanks! However, I already have the default theme, looks like I just have to wait a bit (I live in Switzerland, so it may be a bit delayed here) – Cyman May 4 at 20:15

Not the perfect solution, but at least some design improvement, achieved with the Chrome add-on by Michael Leggett, former Gmail lead designer (release just after Inbox was dropped, which says it all, I guess)
