Odds are that you've been using the same version of Gmail for the past few years, but Google is coming out with a new version of Gmail that looks and feels very different from the current one (though with features reminiscent of Google Inbox).

Once that rollout begins, users will still have the ability to revert back to the old Gmail interface for "a period of time", but after 12 weeks following the rollout's start, Google will force everyone to use the new UI whether they've opted-in or not.

Google has announced that the new Gmail layout - which was introduced back in April, and is now available as part of an Early Adopter Program - will be available to all users starting next month.

Wait approximately four weeks until their users are allowed to opt in to the new Gmail.

New Gmail is now available in an "Early Adopter Program" (EAP) with an option to try it out before the GA.

Immediately transition their users to the new Gmail. If you prefer the old design, or just aren't ready to make the change quite yet, you can open the Settings menu and click "Go back to classic Gmail". Meanwhile, those who have already transitioned to the new Gmail will no longer be able to opt out.

Features of the new Gmail such as offline and confidential mode will be off by default when the new version reaches general availability in July.

Here is everything that's new in Gmail - plus when and how you can try it. For a period of time, users will still have the option to opt out (see below for more details).
