Quick Settings menu for Gmail
It’s essential to have at least one Google account active to make this setting work in Gmail.
Launch your Gmail app.
Go to the Settings menu (visible as a cogwheel icon in the upper-right corner of the window).
Click the icon to display various options. For instance,
- You can change the density of the information by selecting the desired options listed.
- Change the default them or check out the new ones.

Honestly speaking, these are not new features, but elusive ones that lie hidden deep inside Gmail’s settings. As such, many users are not aware of them, unless they go digging.
Lastly, it is important to remember that if you have a personal Google account or a business account that’s been configured to access new features, the menu should be visible to you, latest by June 10. Otherwise, you’ll have to wait for some time (July 7).
