Google is redesigning Gmail to streamline the user experience

Gmail accounts to get new Confidential Mode, and it could change how you use email

This is the new Gmail design

Google is reportedly testing a self-destructing option for emails as part of its upcoming Gmail redesign.

The other feature Google looks set to bring over of Inbox is the snooze option, which can temporarily hide an email from your Inbox until the time you are ready to deal with it.

This should allow users to place more trust in email, and send confidential information they might have previously avoided sending via Gmail.

One of those features is the excellent Smart Reply which uses AI to offer up a choice of three automatic response to an email.

The new Gmail is set to release in a few weeks, but there has been no exact word on when confidential mode will roll out. Google has been trying to implement their entire ecosystem for some time now, and this design is a good step in the right direction for Gmail users.

So far, the only potential answer is a link with the message, "This message was sent with Gmail's confidential mode" the sent email reads. The icon called as "confidential mode" suggests that the recipient won't be able to share the content inside the email with someone else as he/she won't be able to copy the content, download or print it. Once you click it, you can configure when you want the email to disappear. Google uses machine learning to tune Smart Reply's suggestions to your writing style, so the more you use it, the more useful it gets. Snooze can be a godsend if you get a lot of emails, receive one when you don't have time to answer, and forget about it when the incoming flood pushes it off your screen. According to TechCrunch, which first broke this story, users can also request that the recipient "confirm their identity with a passcode sent via text message". The default layout highlights attachments while a "comfortable view" does away with the attachment highlight. The compact view is the most similar to the existing Gmail design, allowing existing users to keep a similar layout.

Google confirmed that this new update would reach users soon and there will also be an official message to an early access program that will become available shortly.
