Business Briefs: Gmail, Apple HomePod, Nordstrom

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

Gmail is getting a makeover. Google is adding several new features to its Gmail interface. The redesign will have a fresh, clean look with features like smart reply and email snooze. Users will also be able to view their calendar and write an email in the same window.

Apple's HomePod isn't flying off the shelves so the company has reportedly lowered the sales outlook for the smart speaker. The company has also cut back orders with its manufacturers and inventory is piling up.

Nordstrom is opening its first department store for men only in New York City. The 47,000-square-foot building will have three levels that feature four mini shops with upscale brands like Calvin Klein and Dior.
