Gmail redesign could feature self-destructing emails

  • Gmail for Android

In conclusion, the new surprising Gmail feature, Confidential Mode, will permit users to encrypt their sensitive emails so they won't be accessed by third-parties.

Walking on the line of other applications like Snapchat, Line and Signal, Gmail is also devising a feature which will let users draft self-destructing emails.

"You'll soon be able to send expiring emails". Earlier in the week, we learned that Google has a redesign of the Gmail web interface arrivingfor G Suite and regular users in the coming weeks. This will be especially useful for sending confidential emails or emails that you feel should be read and deleted for privacy purposes.

The initial purge of search results applied to Google's local search pages covering the EU's 28 member nations and four other European countries, encompassing more than 500 million people. Working on an email service is hard as you have to be compatible with all sorts of email providers and email clients. However, that doesn't seem to stop Google, as the company is now going beyond the POP3/IMAP/SMTP protocols. As for recipients, they are expected to receive a link for expiring email which can be viewed by logging into their Gmail account again.


Additionally, when viewing a confidential email, Google reportedly disables the ability to copy or print anything in the email - though as the images in TechCrunch's story prove, there's nothing stopping someone from taking a screenshot or even a picture with a nearby smartphone. This is because Google is now asking users to confirm their Google account to view the confidential email.

"Google will also let Gmail users require a passcode to open emails, which will be generated via SMS, or set an expiration date on sent emails", The Verge reported. Google has not mentioned end-to-end encryption anywhere, which means the company is most likely to stick with non-encrypted emails.

A new snooze feature will also be available. The researchers behind the project wrote in a blog post; "Our method works on ordinary videos with a single audio track, and all that is required from the user is to select the face of the person in the video they want to hear, or to have such a person be selected algorithmically based on context".
