Gmail app gets card interface, improved conversation threads

Gmail announced on Wednesday that the official Android app is getting a new look over the coming days and weeks. Two key changes in the client include a cleaner, card-like layout and enhanced conversation threading. Additional details include better selection of multiple messages and more obvious sync status.

Starting today, Gmail for Android is getting a new, cleaner design for its conversation view. The update also includes a number of additional design tweaks such as checkmarks for multiple message selection so you can easily see what messages you are about to move, archive or delete.
