Google's Redesign of Gmail to Include a 'Confidential Mode'

Gmail Icon

This is the new Gmail design

The redesign will focus mainly on Gmail for web to make it look cleaner and user-friendly like its mobile interface. It has been acclaimed for its simplicity, robust feature set, and usability. However, unlike similar features in Proton Mail, self-destructing messages in Google don't simply delete themselves like you'd expect.

The new Gmail features include smart reply, offline support, and a "snooze emails" option, according to the report. The publication's report notes that email services have to be compatible with multiple email providers and email clients.

Google confirmed to Gizmodo Australia saying users can no longer purchase the Pixel from the company.




The expiring emails feature works similarly to the expiring emails feature in ProtonMail as the email becomes unreadable after some time.

When composing an email it appears users will be able to click a lock that prevents the contents of said communication being forwarded, copied, pasted, printed or downloaded. This passcode will be generated via SMS and there will also be an expiration date on sent emails. These features will be an vast help to businesses that want more control over how emails are used by recipients. Recipients will then receive an e-mail that requires them to click a link and input their Google credentials to view the e-mail. The recipient had to log into their Google account once again to view the content.

It is essential that email service providers provide quicker solutions to its users which can compete with the easy and quick features of the personal messaging apps. The same features will be available for the regular Gmail users as well. This is because Google is now asking users to confirm their Google account to view the confidential email. When it expires, it is automatically deleted from the inbox and the sender's inbox. As detailed in a new paper, the researchers were able to create videos with a computer in which specific people's voices are enhanced, while all other sounds are toned down. This greatly improves speech separation quality when more than one person is present, according to the post.
