Reportedly Gmail is testing confidential emails that expire automatically

14 April 2018

This feature which is gaining attention from all the big tech giants hasn't been left out by the Gmail team and is possibly ready to be pushed ahead to the users.

Google is working on a design for the web version of its popular email service Gmail.

TechCrunch in its story suggested that Self-destructing Email mode means sender can stop the recipient from downloading, forwarding, copying, or printing the email.

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. Further, the person added, "We need a bit more time to compose ourselves, so can't share anything yet-archive this for now, and we'll let you know when it's time to hit send". 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. Notably, it looks like recipients of the confidential email will have to log into their Google accounts once again to read the email. The Verge has obtained screenshots of the new Gmail design, now being tested inside Google and with trusted partners.

The new design changes implemented in Gmail have been awaited by very many people for a long time and, now, they will be implemented to bring an improved user experience.

There has been no official announcement regarding the launch of this feature to the users in their entirety. Also, the new redesigned Gmail might be just around the corner, presently the redesigned Gmail has been seen on the Early Adopters Program. Google, if rumors are right, working on enhanced confidential mode, which will allow the recording of the email as well. For now, there's no clarity on when the new Gmail will roll out for public use.
