New Gmail Confidential Mode auto-expires and locks emails

Maxwell Jenkins in ‘Lost in Space

It's unclear whether this feature will only be available to Gmail users, or if people who use Gmail with non-Gmail accounts will also be able to send disappearing messages. The first of these new features is "Confidential Mode", a tool that will allow users to prevent email recipients from forwarding, copying or downloading specific emails. If you access it from your email, it's mostly a simple check list with due dates.

The report said some people who pay for Google's suite of services, called GSuite, received messages asking if they wanted to participate in a program to preview upcoming changes - including a Gmail redesign.

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

The new version of Gmail will also show a lock icon which would be placed in the compose box in order to activate the Confidential Mode. According to TechCrunch, the Confidential Mode feature could be released at the same time or could be delayed to a subsequent update.

While Google, Bing and other search engines can remove links from their search results, they cannot delete the news articles or web pages. Users will be able to select a date when the email will expire, after which the receiver will no longer be able to see the email.

Trump negatively assessed the state of relations with Russian Federation
Soon after the tweets Russia's Foreign Ministry said that "smart missiles should fly towards terrorists, not legal government". Russian President Vladimir Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov in Moscow, Russia , April 6, 2017.

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.

The new Google tech uses audio recognition to find voices in, say a crowded pub, to boost the sound wave over the others and make it audible.

Google is implementing smart replies for Gmail on the web, the same feature from mobile Gmail that provides suggestions to quickly reply to emails.

Apparently, while Google's self-expiring emails aren't encrypted, users will have the option of confirming the recipient's identity by entering a person's phone number and sending a passcode in a text message. But users can take screenshot or photo of email. Google has not mentioned end-to-end encryption anywhere, which means the company is most likely to stick with non-encrypted emails.

Rather, it hides them for a short period of time, allowing users to clean up their inbox.
