Google Overhauls Gmail to Attract Outlook Users

Google had reportedly unveiled its latest redesign of Gmail since 2013 which, according to the Alphabet company, was an expensive two-year overhaul to improve security and offline functionality that would compete with Microsoft’s Outlook.

The search giant revealed that it had restructured email storage databases, unified three dueling systems for syncing messages across devices, and upgraded the computers underpinning the service with its self-developed Tensor processing chips.

Gmail’s product manager lead says that the effort was an entire rewrite of their flagship product which is used by around 1.4 billion people each month.
