Gmail is testing sending confidential emails that automatically expire

The new Gmail which is now being tested internally and with trusted Google partners

The new Gmail which is now being tested internally and with trusted Google partners

As revealed by The Verge, the Gmail update is about more than just giving the email service a new coat of paint. In addition, there will be the features like "Smart Replies" with Gmail.com that delivers mechanical replies (powered by machine-learning concept) to the email accounts, which can be delivered with one click. Officially unveiling and launching the new look for Gmail at the annual event makes sense, so users may be looking at less than a month before they are able to enjoy the Gmail redesign and new features.

Snooze Option: Gmail users will be soon able to snooze emails from particular senders, which will allow them to recheck the mails after a specific time.

Earlier today, we reported that Google was about to give Gmail a major facelift. The company might showcase new Gmail features at the Google I/O 2018, which will commence on the 8th of May.

Google is implementing smart replies for Gmail on the web, the same feature from mobile Gmail that provides suggestions to quickly reply to emails. In any case, Gmail users should be pleased to finally see a refresh of the web app. The company claims that with the new feature, it is easier and faster for a user to search results on their smartphones.

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

For those who don't like change, the good news is that Google is allowing Gmail users to choose from three different layouts, including a "Compact" layout that is closer to the current look, according to The Verge. A new snooze feature also lets you temporarily remove emails from your inbox until a certain time, so you can avoid certain email threads until you're ready to reply.
