Gmail to soon receive 'Confidential Mode' and 'Self-Destructing' Emails

The report suggests that the new Gmail could come with a self-destructing email feature, similar to what is already offered by Protonmail.

The businessman who lost his case to be "de-listed" complained about three links returned by Google providing information about his conviction for "conspiracy to account falsely", for which he received a sentence of four years.

The Washington Post reported Thursday on rumors about Google's Gmail revamp, and TechCrunch and the Verge got their hands on supposed screenshots of the updated design and new features.

This could make it easier to schedule meetings and check availability while emailing people.

The new design won't be any mere cosmetic exercise but will sport new functional features, which include Smart Reply (like the one on the mobile), an email snoozing feature where you can choose when the email reappears again and offline support.


Mr Justice Warby said the businessmen, who can not be named for legal reasons, complained of results returned by Google Search that feature links to third-party reports about their convictions.

Apparently, Google has also added some new lines of codes to its "Like" feature of Google Photos app.

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.

Aside from appearance, Google is implementing smart replies for Gmail on the web. From Android phones to what we watch on YouTube, even our work and personal email are mostly done through Google's Gmail service. "Unfortunately they can not always decide on the type of device they have, or the kind of connection they are on", said Charles Murito, Google country manager, Kenya.

'We need a bit more time to compose ourselves, so can't share anything yet-archive this for now, and we'll let you know when it's time to hit send'. The main objective of the new design is to give users, a much more consistent user experience. The company isn't revealing exactly what the new design for Gmail looks like.
