Google overhauls G Suite with redesign, AI and efforts to cut clutter

These include several AI-based features including Smart Reply, email snoozing, and nudging recepients to respond. A new mobile feature, meanwhile, will allow users to receive notifications only for "high priority" emails.

It's all pretty clever then - and while Google admits it still won't make your emails completely bulletproof (there's nothing to stop you literally taking a photo of your screen with your phone), it will reduce opportunities for crimes of convenience. In addition to that, the tabs are compatible with drag and down so that you can simply move emails over to, for instance, Google Tasks and create a new task.

Ultimately, new Gmail is trying out some bigger ideas that challenge the traditional concept of an inbox. That shift to Google's self-developed Tensor processing chips enables smart-assistant features such as "suggested replies" to messages and "nudges" to respond to forgotten emails. This is in line with the earlier leaks of what to expect from Gmail's new confidential mode, but it's still unsure about exactly how well this will work. The "regular" Gmail users can try the new features under the Settings menu where an option of "Try new Gmail" will be available. This feature provides the user with contextual responses to reply to emails received. This specific feature has been brought over from the Inbox for Gmail app. Existing email standards don't support the idea of retrieving an email once it's landed in someone else's inbox, so Google built its own technology for the objective. Besides, in the age of phishing and ransomware, Gmail alerts users of potentially harmful mails. This feature will allow a user to send an email with restrictions such as an expiry, or limiting the option to forwards, copy download or print messages.

That emphasis is explained in part by the fact that Gmail is part of G Suite-the portfolio of apps formerly known as Google Docs-which itself reports up into Google Cloud, the Google arm which sells services to businesses.

"Because you can require additional authentication via text message to view an email, it's also possible to protect data even if a recipient's email account has been hijacked while the message is active", it said.

Additionally, an expiration date can be set to automatically delete the email after the mentioned time interval.

Confidential mode on Gmail.

Working offline will also be a whole lot simpler.

The new look goes live today, while some other features will appear in the coming weeks. As for now, what are your thoughts on Gmail's major redesign?

Gmail for web will also allow you to quickly access attachments right from the inbox without having to open the mail. The lack of the ability to snooze emails has remained one of the glaring shortcomings of Gmail, and I'm glad Google will finally address it. If you want to opt out, you can go back there and choose "Go back to classic Gmail".
