Gmail Confidential Mode Brings Self-Destructing Emails And Identity Verification For Recipients

The firm confirmed that the update may render some Google Chrome extensions incompatible with the new version of Gmail, but it did not name any particular services. 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.

Gmail's web interface hasn't been updated for a while now, and it appears Google will be doing just that in the coming weeks. Like ephemeral stories, these emails will be automatically cleared as soon as they're in the inbox for a specific time period.

A Google spokesperson has provided the following statement (emphasis included): "We're working on some major updates to Gmail (they're still in draft phase)". However, some have speculated that if it doesn't happen in the next few weeks, the company may share more details about the redesign at Google I/O in May.

Meanwhile, Android Authority has posted screenshots of an early version of the new Gmail design which is being tested by Google.

Today, we're learning that Google is looking to add a new feature to Gmail: self-destructing emails. In 2017, Gmail had 1.2 billion active worldwide users.

Some plugins also are available for the "Gmail Add-ons" feature that was unveiled in past October. The redesign will reportedly feature an easier-to-access Calendar, the ability to send smart replies, support for offline mode, and much more.

- Search results are also cached on the device so you can quickly re-access previous searches‚ even when you're offline‚ without incurring further data costs.

While we still don't have a launch date, the new Gmail is expected to make its first official appearance at the company's annual developer conference next month on 8th.

The bar looks as if it has icons for the Calendar, the note-taking app Google Keep, and Google's new Tasks app.
