Google Introduces New Layout Editor Tool in Gmail

Say goodbye to generic email templates! Google has introduced a powerful new layout editor tool within Gmail and Drive. This user-friendly feature empowers you to create fully customized email layouts for professional announcements, newsletters, and more.

Enhanced Email Creation Experience:

In 2022, Google introduced pre-designed email layouts to streamline the creation of professional-looking emails. These templates offered basic customization options like adding logos, colors, and images. Google expanded on this functionality in 2023 by allowing users to modify existing templates, reuse custom layouts, and even build layouts from scratch (for Workspace Individual users).

Introducing the All-New Layout Editor:

Taking email personalization to a whole new level, the layout editor grants users across various Google Workspace editions the ability to design custom email layouts directly within Gmail's compose window or Google Drive. Here's what you can expect:
  • Create from Scratch or Use Templates: Design layouts entirely from scratch or leverage a library of pre-built email templates containing elements like text boxes, images, and buttons.
  • Complete Customization: Unleash your creativity and personalize every aspect of your layout. This includes customizing color schemes, adding logos, incorporating images, editing footer text, and inserting links or buttons.
  • Real-Time Collaboration: Share your layout with other users and enable them to edit it in real-time within their Gmail or Drive platform.
