21 mayo, 2021

Gmail recently received a new update. The main protagonist of this update it was google meet, which has become more deeply integrated into the application than ever before. This means that now, when we open Gmail, we have two sections: one for mail and the other for ‘meeting’.

Whoever is practically never going to use this new section should raise their hand and want to return to the previous interface. If this is your case, we are going to show you how you can remove the section easily, so that this wide bar does not appear at the bottom of the app.

Logic dictates that this option could be in ‘general settings’, so it is easy to miss it in the first place. However, if we press within the account settings We will find it, and we only have to click on it for Gmail to show itself as it was before this update arrived.
