EMAIL SERVICE Gmail will receive a facelift according to a leaked video.
Google's popular Gmail service will receive cosmetic changes that include the ability to automatically change the layout according to window size and the ability to alter the density of items shown on the screen. There are also changes to the look and feel of Gmail threads, which now look a bit more like Google+ conversations.
For Google, Gmail is one tool that its social networking rivals, Facebook and Twitter, simply don't have. If, as the video is implying, there's greater integration with Google+ then it marks a logical move to push Google+ to the vast number of Gmail users.
Although Google removed the leaked video from Youtube, it has since been reposted and with the cat well and truly out of the bag, it seems that Google has left it online. µ
