Gmail For Android Gets A Cool New Compose Button

This new Compose button is not available in Gmail's web or iOS-based platforms yet.

Google has made a small change to its Gmail app. The company has changed the look and feel of Gmail’s floating compose button.

Google last year had introduced a new compose button for the Gmail app. The compose button consisted of a multi-colored ‘+’ icon that was housed inside a circular floating menu that could be spotted on the bottom right corner of the app.

Now, the company has replaced its circular plus icon with an oblong-shaped floating menu that has a pencil-shaped icon next to the word ‘Compose’.

According to a report by 9to5 Google, which first spotted the change, the new and updated icon is available in Gmail for Android version 2020.05.17.313130477.

The publication noted that the company has started rolling out the updated compose button to its users across the globe via a Play Store update.

In case you are an iPhone user and wondering when a similar update will be rolled out to Gmail’s iOS-based app then you are out of luck.

Gmail hasn’t rolled out the updated compose button to its iOS-based app. But given the feature has already been rolled out on the Android OS, an update for Gmail’s iOS-based shouldn’t be far behind.

As far as Gmail’s web-based platform is concerned, Google is still showing the multicolored + icon along with ‘Compose’ on the top left corner of the screen. That said, Google has a history of syncing its app and web-based design and so it is possible that Google will roll out the update on to the web in the coming days.
