Integrate into the New Gmail UI Apps Sidebar, Instead of Own Side Panel

CI isn’t following the convention of all the other Gmail sidebar apps in the New Gmail UI (2018). CI uses its own interface for a side panel... not the sidebar panel with all the other app buttons and interfaces.

You can prove/test this because CI and another regular sidebar app can both be open at the same time. No two regular sidebar apps can be open at the same time because opening a new one closes the second, as they occupy the same space in the UI.

Additionally, this causes rendering issues with all other sidebar apps who are following the official app guidelines. Sometimes they overlap, the interface can become unusable, etc. I can provide screenshots on request.

Is it on the roadmap to fully integrate into the Gmail sidebar like all other apps, or does CI intend to always operate outside of this more official ecosystem?
