Google Added A Surprising New Feature In Gmail - The Confidential Mode

The new look for Gmail will also come with several new features, but there were no screenshots on what exactly Google will change with the email service's design. According to a new leak, Google is also working on a new feature that will enable users to send emails which expire after a specified time, a Self Destructing Email.

Moreover, Gmail will also allow you to set a deadline for certain emails, which, when reached, will trigger the automatic complete deletion of the chosen emails.

Google is all set to roll out an updated Gmail and the tech giant has already begun notifying some of the G Suite users about the same.

Google revealed yesterday that it's planning to launch a new Gmail design in the coming weeks.

One downside to the new Gmail design and the self-destructing emails is that it's now unclear whether the feature will work on clients other than Google. Now there is news Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL) has been working on a new version of Gmail for the web. It's a simpler and cleaner layout to which most users should respond positively, yet it still features the same characteristic design elements for which Gmail is known.

It had pledged to stop attacks, damage to the fence and infiltration bids, and said there have been attempts at all three. Avoid fake news! Subscribe to the Standard SMS service and receive factual, verified breaking news as it happens.

But the move has sparked concerns about news stories and other previously public information being hidden. In the compose window of Gmail, there is a small lock icon named "Confidential Mode", which states that the email recipient won't be able to forward email content, copy and paste, download or print the email. Of course, these features won't restrict the receiver's ability to store the email's content via taking a screenshot or capture a photo from another device. If a user is busy and unable to respond to a particular email, he or she can hit the snooze button.

The company will host its annual developers conference May 8. Delving further into the redesign we find that there are new features, including self-destructing emails.

Instead, Gmail sends the recipient a dummy email with a hyperlink to the actual self-expiring message, which is what actually disappears when time expires.

Some plugins also are available for the "Gmail Add-ons" feature that was unveiled in past October.

Offline support, which Google said it will make available by June 2018, will let you store your emails on your computer so you can access them offline.
