GOOGLE has announced an alteration to the user interface for individuals and companies using Gmail.
The new orientation for Gmail started to roll out to users today.
Google has made slight alterations to the Gmail menu system for Chat, Mail, Spaces, and Meet.
The new layout is called "integrated view".
Google published a support blog on the new interface.
"Google's Mail, Chat, Spaces, and Meet apps are now integrated into the Gmail main menu. The main menu of each app displays in a collapsible panel. You can hide or show the collapsible panel at any time."

Previously, apps in the Google Workspace were aligned in a single left-side column with collapsable tabs.
The new UI adds a skinny rail column even further left.
Hovering over each app gives a small preview of the latest developments in your network on that app and double-clicking will open up a full-screen experience.
The new rail is called the Quick Settings menu and it can be customized to your needs.
Click the Settings gear, then click "Customize" in the "Apps in Gmail" tab.
