When Google launched Inbox in 2014, it introduced a radical transformation that left many wondering where Gmail stood. Clicking on one of the icons in the thin vertical bar in the top right corner appears to pull the respective app in, while still giving the user a clear view of the whole inbox, as seen above.

When reading an email, users will notice several design tweaks.
