Google is about to launch a Gmail web redesign

Google is about to launch a Gmail web redesign”

However, the most exciting feature of all might be a new "Confidential Mode" revealed by reports on Friday. The publication's report notes that email services have to be compatible with multiple email providers and email clients.

According to a new report from The Verge, Google will also be introducing a new "Confidential Mode", which lets users stop recipients from forwarding certain emails.

TechCrunch provided screenshots showing the feature, called "confidential mode".

Apparently, while Google's self-expiring emails aren't encrypted, users will have the option of confirming the recipient's identity by entering a person's phone number and sending a passcode in a text message. It will reportedly lets Gmail users send emails that can be set to expire, meaning that the recipients won't be able to download, forward or print those emails after a certain time period.

As of now, it's unknown whether the feature is going to be compatible with non-Gmail users. It's not clear how that data counts people who have personal Gmail accounts and work Gmail accounts monitored by G Suite administrators, but the notice sent out by Google says that these changes will be coming to personal email accounts as well. Of course, these features won't restrict the receiver's ability to store the email's content via taking a screenshot or capture a photo from another device.

The tech giant said to be revamping Tasks, which is likely to encourage people to stay in their inbox for most of their working day, getting everything done via a single webpage. On the other hand, Google generates an email with a link in Gmail's current implementation. It's also not confirmed that these emails will include end-to-end encryption. The message behind the link disappears after some time, but this doesn't mean that the intermediate email also disappears.
