This Gmail Will Self Destruct: Confidential Mode Is Coming

The addition of Confidential Mode will grant users greater control over the emails they send, giving them the option of adding password protection to a message so they can not be opened by unauthorized people. With the next update, users will soon be greeted with Google Calendar directly on their Gmail web. As per some screenshots, users will be able to set an expiration date so that the sent email disappears or is unreadable after a week or several years depending on what they choose.

"We're working on some major updates to Gmail (they're still in draft phase)", a Google spokesperson said in a statement to TechRadar.

The home page icons also make it easier and faster to to discover new content, and the Google's voice search feature has also been improved to work better on slower internet connections. TechCrunch's report notes that a confidential message doesn't have to be encrypted, which means that it's likely that Google can still see the content of the email.

Gmail for the web is getting a fresh redesign that will bring it closer to what its most recent Gmail for mobile app looks like.

Meanwhile, a rough sketch of the new Gmail interface has surfaced online, which has been shared by an Indian, who saw a Google employee working on it in a public transport!

As of now, there is no information about this feature being available to non-Gmail users. Also, in the aftermath of Facebook data theft scam, it became inevitable for tech companies to highlight and enhance security features.

The revamp looks like it'll feature a new, clean design, smart replies, the ability to snooze emails and a new pane for the Calendar and Keep apps.

The last effort made by Google to change Gmail's interface was when it introduced the Inbox concept, though the web version has not changed in appearance even after that change in 2014. The compact view will be similar to the current Gmail design, something that current users should be happy about. The company is set to host its annual developers conference May 8; Google often unveils new software and services at that conference.
