Gmail enhances mobile experience with responsive design


Mobile users will find a better Gmail interface as they wade through large emails from today.

On Wednesday, Google announced a clean responsive design for mobile, making it easier for viewers to navigate across digital platforms.

Though the Gmail interface was responsive, the small text, buttons and links sometimes made it a less-than ideal experience, mainly due to many emails being formatted for larger screens.

From this month, Google said Gmail and Inbox by Gmail will be responsive, adapting to screen sizes and accessible from multiple devices/platforms.

“Text, links, and even buttons will enlarge to make reading and tapping easier on a smaller screen,” the Gmail development team said in a blog post.

Gmail users on desktop will also see improvements as emails designed for mobile can also adapt to fit larger screens.

“These changes will make your email experience as comfortable and intuitive as possible. And as responsive design becomes more common, you’ll continue to see emails that fit better on all your screens and devices,” the team noted.
