This Gmail Will Self Destruct: Confidential Mode Is Coming


The new Gmail design is now being tested inside of Google and with trusted partners.

His colleague Charles Murito, Google country head for Kenya, added that "Someone in Turkana [in northern Kenya] shouldn't have any worse an experience than someone in NY just because they don't have as good a device or connection". "Complete", meaning that those sensitive emails will also be deleted immediately from Google servers. "Confidential Mode" will, for starters, prevent recipients from sharing the email's content.

Given what has been reported about the changes, it sounds like Google is again hoping to update its web look with elements from its mobile operating system, such as a search bar with rounded corners.

Google has said that it will make the new features available to G Suite and Gmail users "in the coming weeks". According to Android Authority, a trusted source offered the early look at the Gmail redesign, which confirmed reports of features such as Smart Reply, email snoozing, and a sidebar that provides easy access to Google apps such as Calendar.

While we usually greet the word "redesign" with a cringe, this Gmail redesign doesn't look bad at all. The Verge notes, though, that recipients will still be able to take screenshots or photos of these confidential emails. Google's method works on ordinary videos with a single audio track and all the user must do is select the face of the person in the video they want to hear.

Google on Wednesday alerted G Suite administrators about upcoming changes to the Gmail web interface that are rolling out to participants of an Early Access Program "in the next few weeks". The Default View shows users the kind of attachments to their emails through different colored icons, while the Comfortable View uses the familiar paperclip icon to signal an attachment. Gmail will let users configure expiration date for expiring mails such as a week, month, multiple years, and more. Google has meanwhile kept mum about the new features, requesting for a bit more time to compose themselves before they share anything.

The company says the tweaks will bring the mobile and desktop version closer together in appearance.

Since Google is working on some major updates now, it looks like there are plenty of new features to get excited about it.
