Upcoming Gmail redesign will also herald the arrival of self-destructing emails

In addition to a fresh design, the company also listed some of the new features.

The Washington Post reported Thursday on rumors about Google's Gmail revamp, and TechCrunch and the Verge got their hands on supposed screenshots of the updated design and new features. The redesign will reportedly feature an easier-to-access Calendar, the ability to send smart replies, support for offline mode, and much more. Working on an email service is hard as you have to be compatible with all sorts of email providers and email clients. "But it doesn't seem to be stopping Google as the company is now evolving beyond the simple POP3/IMAP/SMTP protocols", the report reads.

Confidential emails as they appear in the inbox of the recipient above, the text of the email itself after following the link and signing in again below. Apparently, the new self-destructing emails feature which will allow the users to put a timestamp to their mails after which the email won't be available anymore has been termed as the "Confidential Mode" in Gmail. However, there is one big concern surrounding the new feature which is - although Google does not allow printing, copying, or pasting of the email content there are no measures whatsoever to prevent the receiver from screenshotting the email.

Arsenal Can Move Step Closer To Champions League Qualification Tonight
When is the Champions League final? The final takes place on Saturday May 26 form the NSC Olimpiyskyi stadium in Kiev. Paul will be in the hot-seat for kick-off (?) but we'll be building up to the draw throughout the morning.

TechCrunch states that the feature isn't ready yet, as their source arrived at a non-existent page after clicking on the "Learn more" option to open Google's help articles. However, since recipients are still able to screenshot a message, it's not a guarantee of privacy. The compact view will be similar to the current Gmail design, something that current users should be happy about. When it expires, it is automatically deleted from the inbox and the sender's inbox.

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.
