Google plans to discontinue the usage of Gmail’s Basic HTML version, effectively commencing in January 2024.

In January 2024, Google is planning to shut down its Basic HTML version of Gmail. After that, all users will be directed to the Standard view of Gmail. The Basic HTML version of Gmail eliminated several features such as chat, spell check, and rich formatting options (bold, italics, colors). It was designed for users with slow internet connections, difficulties in loading JavaScript, or experiencing issues loading the regular version of Gmail for various reasons. However, users could still opt to use the Basic HTML version temporarily.

According to Google’s spokesperson, in a statement to The Register, the Basic HTML version of Gmail is essentially the older version of Gmail that is still in use. It lacks some features and has been replaced by the current version of Gmail for over a decade.

TLDR: Google will discontinue its Basic HTML version of Gmail in January 2024, redirecting users to the Standard view. The Basic HTML version was designed for users with slow internet connections or loading issues. It will be replaced by the current version of Gmail, which offers more features.
