According Google, the change was implemented to prepare for “future authentication systems that complement passwords.”

"As we’ve said many times, we're working towards introducing new authentication solutions that complement traditional passwords.

This change to our web sign-in page is another step in that direction," Jordan, Gmail Community Manager said.
