Google Phases Out HTML View in Gmail, Paving the Way for the ‘Standard View’

Transition Alert: Gmail's Classic HTML View Set to Retire

It’s worth noting that the HTML view has been beneficial for visually impaired individuals, as it is more compatible with screen-reading aids, offering a smoother experience. However, Google is adamant about moving all users to the ‘Standard View.’

HTML View’s Official Retirement Date

Google has set January 2024 as the official retirement date for the HTML view. Starting then, users will be compelled to use the ‘Standard View.’ A Google spokesperson emphasized, “The Gmail Basic HTML views are previous versions of Gmail that were replaced by their modern successors 10+ years ago and do not include full Gmail feature functionality.”
