Everything you need to know about the Gmail redesign

You'll also be able to send emails in "Confidential Mode", which will block the recipient from forwarding, copying and pasting, downloading, or printing the email. There also appears to be a self-destruct button of sorts, via a customizable expiration date that allows the user to send the email into the ether after a time period of the user's choosing-whether that's a week, month, or even a few years.

"You'll soon be able to send expiring emails". According to the TechCrunch report and additional details found by The Verge, it sounds like Google creates a link to the confidential email and then emails that link to the recipient, who will be required to log in with Google account details or enter the SMS-generated passcode to view the message behind the link.

The self-destructing emails in the new Gmail design seem to function like the popular client ProtonMail, and when a new "confidential" mode, you can make it so that an email becomes unreadable after a certain amount of time. The company said in a recent email, obtain by The Verge, that the new interface will include new features and a "fresh, clean look for Gmail on the web", including smart reply, the option to snooze emails and offline support for emails.

Google is planning a major update to its email service, reports say.

The recipients of those confidential emails will simply receive a link to their Gmail account. Considering Keep can already pull double duty as a barebones to-do list, I'm hoping Google has some new features in tow. In the past, Google has said user privacy is worth just $25 and that Gmail users don't have legitimate privacy concerns.

TechCrunch, who received the information from a tipster with early access, points out this could be a ploy to get more Gmail users' phone numbers. This measure is one of the new and serious security measures for emails Google wants to implement. On the other side, the confidentiality of mail content will be protected by a link, which only will be revealed after identity verification. TechCrunch's report notes that a confidential message doesn't have to be encrypted, which means that it's likely that Google can still see the content of the email.
