Gmail Redesign Will Feature A 'Confidential Mode'”

Leaked images have given us a hint as to what that might look like, and now a new report from The Verge has revealed that in addition to the new design, there might also be some new features to look forward to.

The improved design, which will be the biggest redesign of Gmail in nearly a decade, will feature a handy snooze feature, that allows you to put off dealing with annoying emails, an offline mode and Google's brilliant Smart Reply feature.

The new feature will display a pop up that will allow users to set a date for when they want the email to "self destruct".

Gmail users who use Confidential Mode will be able to stop recipients from forwarding select emails.

There will also be an option that will require a passcode, that's sent over SMS in order to open a message.

The blockbuster Gmail upgrade comes as Google is expected to announce more big news in the coming weeks.

Among the many features that were spotted earlier this week, TechCrunch reports that a Confidential Mode will also be introduced which will allow users to choose whether they want the recipient to be able to forward the email content, restrict them from copy and pasting, downloading or printing them, and even choose if they want the email to self-destruct.

There's now no word on a final release date for the new Gmail, however, a message to early access testers hints at a launch date in the coming weeks.

While Google is set to update the look of Gmail, few details of exactly what the tech giant has in store for its ever popular email service remains unclear. It's likely that the Confidential Mode will be available along with Smart Reply and Snooze features when it starts to roll out.

According to technology blog The Verge, the new feature allows Gmail users to control what happens to their message after it is sent.
