Google recently teased that Gmail would soon be getting a new icon, and now it's been revealed as part of a big G Suite update.
The new Gmail icon ditches the envelope for a new four-color icon. It uses the same four colors that Google uses in lots of its other designs, including its own logo: blue, red, yellow, and green.
In addition to Gmail, Google is updating the icons for Calendar, Drive, Docs, and Meet.
Google says that these new icons reflect the "more connected, helpful, and flexible" experience that it's aiming for with Google Workspace, its updated version of G Suite. The new icons will be rolled out over the coming weeks.
Workspace is Google's new name for G Suite, a paid service meant for businesses, that makes it more clear exactly what Workspace is. It includes your own domain for Gmail, admin controls for managing users, sharing calendars, productivity tools like Gmail and Hangouts, and Drive cloud storage.
With the upgrade to Google Workspace, Google has rolled out a new unified experience that helps employees to access tools like chat, email, voice and video calling, and content management in a single place. Workspace is also getting a new feature today that allows you to preview a linked file in Docs, Sheets, and Slides without having to open a new tab.
And in the coming weeks, Google says it'll be rolling out the ability to create and collaborate on documents in Google Chat. Also coming soon is picture-in-picture video calling for Google Meet in Docs, Sheets, and Slides, letting you continue your video call while you're working on documents.
