Later this month, Gmail and Inbox by Gmail will be adopting responsive design, meaning their content adapts to fit screens of all sizes.
Even text, links, and buttons will enlarge to make reading and tapping easier on a smaller screen.
The new responsive will be adopted by desktop version of Gmail as well —”since emails designed for mobile can also adapt to fit larger screens,” writes gmail team.
These changes will make your email experience as comfortable and intuitive as possible. And as responsive design becomes more common, you’ll continue to see emails that fit better on all your screens and devices.
Today, when you send emails, the message look different when opened on a computer, tablet, or phone. However with responsive desgin designer can use CSS media queries with Gmail and Inbox by Gmail to ensure that your message is formatted the way you intended. You’ll be able to change styles based on width, rotation, and resolution, “allowing for more responsive formatting to optimize your email for every device,” says team.
No matter where it’s viewed “on a computer, a phone in portrait mode, or a tablet in landscape mode.”
