New Gmail compose window to become the default on Aug. 27

Effective Tuesday, Aug. 27, if you are a Gmail user, you will no longer be able to opt out of the new compose window experience.

The new streamlined window allows you to compose email without losing the view of your inbox. While typing in the Compose window, you can also check for new email, view existing email, and minimize drafts for later. You can even compose multiple messages at once using the new Compose window.

For more information about the new compose window, see:
