Gmail redesign to include self-destructing email option

Before we get to that, what we know so far is that the redesigned Gmail could launch in the next few weeks and will perhaps be announced at the Google I/O developers conference on May 8.

Google is working on an overhaul of Gmail for web which will see a new interface along with several new features, including a Confidential Mode. "Product Sans letters look like the "g" used in Google's current logo; Roboto will make some noticeable changes to characters like "Q", "?" and "$". Snooze and Smart Reply are both currently part of Google's Inbox app for Gmail, and both features are now making their way to Gmail on the web. This feature is already available for people who use the Inbox by Gmail app or Boomerang, a third-party Gmail tool. You also won't be able to forward the email content or download and print the email itself.

Google is revamping the web version of its popular email service, Gmail. "You can open it by clicking this link". On the bottom of your email with the new design, there will also be "smart replies".

Smart Reply - Smart Reply suggests three responses you might send based on the content of an email you received.

Russian Official Claims Chemical Attack In Syria Was 'Staged'
The Russian leader warned against "ill-considered and unsafe actions ... that would have consequences beyond conjecture". Meanwhile, leaders from the U.S., France and Britain have said the Syrian government was responsible.

I guess time will tell on that one. The report says that Gmail will also be getting the ability to self-destruct an email.

But it will also include a new tool called "confidential mode", which will let emails expire after a certain period time, TechCrunch has reported. The user will also be able to set password requirement, where the recipient has to confirm their identity via a code/OTP sent to the recipient as a text message to access the email. Finally, an email can be locked behind a two-factor authentication process to ensure that only the intended recipient can read it. The compact view is the most similar to the existing Gmail design, allowing existing users to keep a similar layout. The default layout highlights attachments while a "comfortable view" does away with the attachment highlight.

In times when privacy and confidentiality seem to be at risk, this new confidential mode could be a huge success among Gmail users.
