You probably read a lot about the new Gmail redesign and got very excited. But you are a paying G Suite customer, and you’ve also found out you would not get access to it. It felt unfair, like really unfair. Well, here is the good news. You can. Here is how you can get access to the new Gmail right now.
The new Gmail is packed with awesome new features that will boost productivity and simplify email like never before. But, as it started to roll out to ordinary users, G Suite customers were told that they would not be able to enjoy the redesign “for the moment.”
Well, that was not entirely true. In fact, you can get access to the new Gmail right now. You just have to have your admin enable it in your admin console.
Here is how:
Opt-in To The Gmail Early Adopter Program
In your Google Admin console (at admin.google.com)…
Go to Apps > G Suite > Gmail.
- In User settings, scroll to New Gmail Early Adopter Program.
- Click Allow my users access to the new Gmail UI and features.
- Click Save.
Once you have completed all the above steps, it may take up to one hour for changes to propagate to all of your users. And even then, each user will have to individually choose to “Try the new Gmail” in their settings ( Try the new Gmail.)
If it feels overwhelming, users will also be able to switch back to the previous version of Gmail by choosing to “Go back to classic Gmail” in their settings.
