Internet search giant Google is facing backlash for changing the way users write emails on Gmail.

With the change, users now have to compose their email in a new window that pops up on top of the inbox.

Earlier, previously, users were switched to a new page to write their email.

Google has been experimenting with the pop-up feature since October and said it is faster and simpler than the previous way of writing emails on Gmail.

However, many users don't think highly of the new feature, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Many have taken to Twitter to complain about how much they dislike the change and are even considering trying out different email services , the report said.

According to the report, users can still switch back to the old way of writing emails with just a few clicks.

Simply press the "Compose" button on the left side of the screen. When the new compose box pops up, click on the down-arrow icon at the bottom right of the window.

Select "Temporarily switch back to old compose".
