Google working on expiring emails for Gmail

Gmail, the email service from Google is right now used by more than 25% of global internet users. In addition, the sender is given the option to set an expiration time/date for the email ranging from hours to years.

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. Before sending an email, users will be able to specify a time frame post which, the email will be deleted from the recipient's inbox.

The company said: "We're working on some major updates to Gmail (they're still in draft phase)". The new design is said to also come with a feature that would ensure only the recipient can view an e-mail and that too for a specific period of time.

Google has unveiled a new, lightweight search app aimed at emerging markets.

Google is implementing smart replies for Gmail on the web, the same feature from mobile Gmail that provides suggestions to quickly reply to emails.


As of now, it's unknown whether the feature is going to be compatible with non-Gmail users.

Google is also keen to lure in more developers to build an app for Gmail Add-ons.

G-Suite administrators will be told first by Google about the new changes, however, users with personal Gmail accounts will also be informed of what's on offer. The majority of the site will look the same, including the same layout and the same three information density settings Gmail users see today. The redesign will be available in the coming weeks as an early-access programme for G Suite customers.

The email was meant to prepare employees tasked with managing companies' G Suite apps - Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Sheets, etc. - to answer questions about the redesign as it's rolled out to personal accounts, meaning we could expect it to look noticeably different.

These include a native offline mode, Smart Reply on the web version of Gmail, and direct access to apps like Google Calendar from within Gmail.
