Google will soon roll out a new version of the email compose and reply features in BergApps. These features put more focus on your message itself, not all the features around it. Here are some of the highlights:
- Fast: Compose messages right from your inbox.
- Simple: Redesigned with a clean, streamlined look.
- Powerful: Check emails as you're typing, minimize drafts for later, and even compose two messages at once.
Google will begin rolling out these new features on November 13, 2012 Once they're available for your account, you can "opt-in" to try them out. For a while, you're free to switch back and forth between the new and classic versions of these features as much as you want. Note that Google will continue to add features and refine the interface.
