The New Gmail Is Definitely Going To Have Self-Destructing Emails

Gmail accounts could be about to get a lot more private thanks to new Confidential Mode for email

As shown by a set of leaked screenshots a G Suite memo, Gmail will get a redesign and a few new features in the coming weeks. This is similar to the LinkedIn message replying feature.

Other new features that will be introduced include smart replies and a column on the right side for Google widgets such as calendar or a to-do list.

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

Google has announced previous year that they are finally upgrading the files attachment feature for their email service which allows the users to send and receive messages with attachments up to 50MB size. Because of the decentralized, protocol-based nature of email, the ability of Google to unilaterally change the access requirements of a given email appears limited.


For now, there has been no word from Google about the release date of the new update but the company has confirmed that the upgrade is being tested. Shortly after the screenshots surfaced online, Google also confirmed that this redesign is in the works. Upon selecting to compose a new email, users would get the option to compose it in "confidential mode".

When the update rolls out across the world, it's expected that you will be able to click a little lock icon whilst typing an email to set an "expiry date".

According to a new report from TechCrunch, a tipster also revealed to the publication that Google is testing a "confidential mode" that would make it easier for users to ensure their emails are only read by the intended person. For an extra layer of security, senders could also require the email recipient to enter a passcode sent in a text message, to confirm their identity before being able to access the contents of the email. Moreover, the emails will also have a self-destructing option, which would allow users to set when their email will expire and become unreadable. Not to mention if users OR senders are utilizing POP3/IMAP/SMTP to access their inbox. "You can open it by clicking on this link".
