Gmail for Android Gets New Compose Button


From the last few months, Google has been tweaking its apps with new UI and features. Recently, we have seen Google Voice and Chat integration for G Suite customers on Gmail on the web. And now, the tech giant is rolling out a tweaked compose button on Gmail on Android.

Until now, there was a circular floating action button in the bottom-right corner of the inbox screen for composing new emails. But now, the latest change brings a new pen icon instead of the multi-colored plus sign, while “Compose” makes the function explicit.

Both items in the button are tinted red, thus matching other highlights in the application. The compose button will retract into a simple circle as you scroll down while swiping up will expand it again.

As of now, it is still unclear whether Gmail on the web will also follow this design tweak or not. Well, the old plus icon which reflects the four colors in the Google logo, is still present in other G Suite apps like Drive and Docs.

This new tweak is now rolling out with the latest version of Gmail on Android which is now available to download via Google Play Store. So, to get this change reflected on your Gmail app, update it now to the latest version.
