Google shares closed lower Tuesday ahead of the new Gmail update

Some minor features include high-priority notifications, which will only notify the user of new emails if they are deemed to be really important, and unsubscribe suggestions, where Google will suggest you unsubscribe from a newsletter if it seems that you're no longer reading these emails.

Google's desktop web-app isn't the only thing getting some attention and the firm will be bringing some new features aimed at reducing inbox clutter to Google's mobile apps. Google is also releasing new Tasks mobile apps for Android and iOS for adding and editing tasks from your smartphone to manage in Calendar and Gmail. You can try them out selecting the "Try the new Gmail" option in the settings menu.

Businesses in the G Suite Early Adopter Program can turn on the new Gmail in the Admin console, but not all features will be available at the same time.

Google started adding AI to Gmail a year ago with the ability to use "smart replies" to quickly respond to emails with phrases Google's machine learning algorithms would come up with.

There aren't additional ads arriving in the new Gmail, either.

How do you get the G Suite updates? Gmail doesn't know if you actually replied to a message in real life, on the phone, or in a text.

It will also now be possible send emails in "confidential mode", which means their contents can not be forwarded, copied, downloaded or printed.

Jacob Bank, the Product Manager for Gmail also added his words about this new upgrade: "This is an entire rewrite of our flagship, most-used product", It is noteworthy that Gmail is a service which 1.4billion people use monthly, around the world.

Another change on the UI front has to do with attachments - you'll see thumbnails for the attachments under the mail, allowing you to open an attachment without having to load the message itself.

'Very good chance' of a US-China trade deal
Among 18 bilateral meetings with his counterparts this week, Mnuchin said he had met with Chinese central bank chief Yi Gang. The president specified no distinct goals for the delegation, but he said the trip was being organized at Beijing's request.

Tasks is another productivity booster being rolled out on the web and on brand new mobile apps. Finally, a new confidential mode allows you to remove the option to forward, copy, download or print messages-useful for when you have to send sensitive information via email like a tax return or your social security number.

Google today officially introduced a redesign for one of the most widely employed web services - Gmail.

How will the new Gmail be received?

The new Gmail also makes sacrifices when it comes to the amount of space you have to scan your inbox.

One of the other business-centric features added to Gmail is IRM or integrated rights management.

Also, users can have a message expire after a set amount of time to prevent it from resurfacing years later.

With phishing attacks, ransomware and impersonation attacks all serious threats organisations face, Google has also taken the opportunity to improve security.

The more subtle aspect of Gmail's redesign is on the intelligence side. All you have to do is type the + sign and start typing until you see the contact information for the person you're looking for.
