"Note that this update just adds an easier way to access settings that already exist in the full Gmail settings menu. There are no new settings, and users' existing settings won't be changed with this update. You can still see the full settings menu by clicking the "See all settings" button at the top of the new quick settings menu," the blog said.

The blog states that the quick settings menu would be rolling out for some users from June 22 while Gmail has started rolling out the feature for selected users from May 26, 2020.
