New changes for Google Products

Google has announced that with their Gmail iOS app and Calendar app updates released on November 7, 2016 there are some major new changes.

Changes you will notice in Gmail:

   * Ability to now do Undo Send
   * Faster search capabilities
   * Ability to swipe to archive or delete items in your inbox

Changes you will notice in Calendar:

   * Month view and week in landscape view
   * Spotlight Search Support
   * Alternate Calendars (non-Gregorian calendars)

The New Google Sites is receiving updates on November 9, 2016.

The new Google Sites look was first released last year and exists parallel with the existing Classic Sites.

To create a site using the new Google Sites you would go to Sites - Create - in new Sites.

Classic Sites will continue to be available until Google has added all the capabilities to the new Sites that are similar to the existing classic Sites.  

In 2017 migration of classic Sites to new Sites will begin.   Beginning 2018, they will start shutting down Classic Sites.   The exact date is yet to be determined.

Check out the new Sites and see the possibilities!
