Google to launch new Gmail design in the coming weeks

As per past reports, Gmail web users will get smart replies, a feature already available on the mobile app, a new sidebar, the ability to snooze emails and three new layouts, among other things.

Google sent an email to G Suite users in which the company shared a few of the brand new features that are on their way to Gmail.The changes seem to include a new design, better support, and new features as well. This is similar to the LinkedIn message replying feature. This will be especially useful for sending confidential emails or emails that you feel should be read and deleted for privacy purposes.

The California-based company could also showcase updates to Google Chrome, Google Photos, Android Wear, Google Home, and more.

In a statement to The Verge, Google revealed: "We're working on some major updates to Gmail (they're still in draft phase)".

When the recipient receives the email they will get a plain text email saying "this message was sent with Gmail's confidential mode".

Like most of Google's services, Gmail has seen an astronomical rise to success with the email platform now thought to have over 1.2billion users worldwide. In the compose video of Gmail, there is a small icon named "Confidential Mode" which States that the email recipient won't be able to forward email content, copy and paste download or print the email. Similarly, the actual security offered by this concept may also be limited, as the TechCrunch report notes that there is no control mechanism preventing the user from taking a screenshot of the message.

Gmail users who use Confidential Mode will be able to stop recipients from forwarding select emails. You are then given the option to choose an expiration date for the message. This is because Google is now asking their users to confirm their Google account to view the confidential email. Not to mention if users OR senders are utilising POP3/IMAP/SMTP to access their inbox.

Google's Gmail redesign will be available in the coming weeks as an early access program for G Suite customers and personal Gmail accounts. "You can open it by clicking on this link".
