Unfortunately, we don't have a picture of the redesign at this point in time, although TechCrunch states that reader Sahil Bhutani saw a Google Employee experimenting with the new design on public transport.
The current incarnation of Gmail features separates your inbox into different categories, such as Social and Promotions.
Streak co-founder Aleem Mawani also told me that Gmail extensions, such as Clearbit, Streak and Dropbox, will be compatible with the new design.
Interestingly, the mockup also shows some actions you can take if you hover over an email, such as archiving, deleting, and snoozing.
But in a few weeks - perhaps at the Google I/O developers conference starting May 8 - you'll have access to some fresh features that might make your life easier and help you get to Inbox Zero a little faster.
Instead of you receiving and having to answer a spam call, the app will automatically send the call to your voicemail.
Email snoozing will allow you to dismiss an email to reappear in your inbox at a specified time; useful if you are cleaning your inbox but don't have time to reply right away.
