Gmail redesign to include self-destructing email option

Gmail redesign to include self-destructing email option

The new Gmail design also features a new sidebar, with the option of using Google's calendar, Keep note-taking app, or tasks side-by-side with your email messages.

This news follows earlier reports of a complete redesign of the Gmail interface in development. The refreshed design will appear for Gmail users on the web, bringing it closer to the company's tweaks for Gmail on mobile devices.

This new feature is already available for people who use the Gmail app on their phones.

A fuller view of changes to Google's product lineup is expected as part of the Google I/O conference next month.

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.

For those of us who can't deal with the onslaught of messages in our inbox but really need to do not forget to reply to a certain message, Google will be offering some help in the form of a snooze button.

Plane Crashes Near Crozet Area, Unconfirmed Report of 1 Fatality Thus Far
The owner of the property where the crash happened says his wife heard an engine noise followed by a thud around 6:30 a.m. According to ABC affiliate WVAW, firefighters would only confirm that authorities are investigating a plane crash.

When a user composes a new email, there will be a small icon called Confidential Mode.

According to technology blog The Verge, the new feature allows Gmail users to control what happens to their message after it is sent. On the bottom of your email with the new design, there will also be "smart replies".

If you're sent an expiring email you want to secretly squirrel away, all you need to do is capture an image of the screen to peruse the message at your leisure.

Snooze an email - You tag an email with a time stamp and it disappears from your inbox and reappears at the time you've chosen.

I guess time will tell on that one. You can tag the email with a convenient time and it will be right there at the top of your inbox when you have the freedom to respond. They can also ask the email recipient to confirm their identity with a passcode sent via text messages. As per some reports from the web, it seems like that Google is also working on a Confidential Mode which is said to bring the self-destructing emails along with some other privacy-focused changes. Finally, an email can be locked behind a two-factor authentication process to ensure that only the intended recipient can read it.

The new design will feature three layout options: default, comfort, and compact.
