For users concerned about this transition, Google assures them that they will receive an in-product announcement with instructions on how to switch to the ‘Standard View’ in the weeks leading up to the HTML view’s removal. To ensure a smooth transition, Google recommends:

  1. Browser Compatibility: Ensure you are using a supported browser running the latest version.
  2. Extensions Check: Verify if any browser extensions are hindering Gmail’s functionality.
  3. Cache and Cookies: Clear your browser’s cache and cookies, which can sometimes resolve loading issues.
