  • an action bar that uses icons instead of text labels,
  • completely new interface for conversations,
  • profile pictures next to contacts,
  • flexible layout that adapts to any window size,
  • display density options like in Google Docs,
  • resizable chat/labels sections,
  • new high-definition themes, and
  • an updated search box that includes advanced options.

In additon, also, note, there is a new arrow added next to "Mail" and the links to Google Contacts and Google Tasks are missing.

The new UI is still not available, but it is expected to be available anytime soon.
