    Google revamped the Gmail interface with Smart Replies, confidential mode, priority notifications, Nudge’ respond reminders was rolled out in early adaptors program back in April, and the interface is still in preview. The new UI will roll out to all G Suite users in July, and we hope it will be available for regular Gmail users as well at the same time. Once the revamped UI is rolled out, G Suite admins will have the option to immediately transition users to the revamped UI, allow users to opt-in for a brief period of time. Google gives G Suite users four weeks time to opt into the new Gmail, and the last option will be the default setting. Eight weeks after the rollout, users will be automatically updated to the new Gmail. However, they still can opt-out for another four weeks. We don't see any reason to opt-out the UI since the new interface is feature rich and is very refreshing. If you wish to try out the new UI, you can opt into the Early Adopter Program by hitting the settings button in your inbox and selecting "Try the new Gmail." Source

    Instagram might be planning on introducing an ability to allow users to post hour long videos soon and way off video length constraints. This would open to new possibilities and creative flexibility. This also brings Instagram closer to YouTube and its own parent company, Facebook.  Since the plan in under tentative tag,  Instagram could change its course and decide not to introduce such feature on its platform. Interestingly, the new feature will also focus on vertical video similar to Instagram stories video format. However, it is not clear if Instagram would allow longer videos only in stories section of the app or also permitted in the main feed. Currently, Instagram allows a length of 15 seconds videos in the main feed  60 seconds in Stories. There is no timeline or timeframe as to when this feature will be rolling out, but with Instagram pushing out features in regular intervals these days, we wouldn't be surprised to see if the feature drops in all of the sudden.
