It's a simpler and cleaner layout to which most users should respond positively, yet it still features the same characteristic design elements for which Gmail is known. Gmail users will be able to require a passcode to open emails generated via SMS, or set an expiration date, similar to capabilities already available on the Microsoft Outlook application, according to a report on the Verge.
"You'll soon be able to send expiring emails". We'd seen drafts of a redesign dating back almost a year ago and heard some descriptions of the new look, but after yesterday's news, several sources shared images of the new design itself - including some new features. "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", the company teased. That means the email will be deleted from recipient's account automatically.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg
Mark Zuckerberg appeared in front of United States senators on Tuesday and at times looked like he'd rather be anywhere else. By the close of Wednesday's hearing, Zuckerberg had spent roughly 10 out of the previous 24 hours testifying before Congress.
"We work hard to comply with the right to be forgotten, but we take great care not to remove search results that are in the public interest", Google said in a statement. The design will feature elements of Google's Material design.
Additionally, when viewing a confidential email, Google reportedly disables the ability to copy or print anything in the email - though as the images in TechCrunch's story prove, there's nothing stopping someone from taking a screenshot or even a picture with a nearby smartphone. Notably, it looks like recipients of the confidential email will have to log into their Google accounts once again to read the email. However, when it expires the email will disappear from the inbox. As the G Suite email, regular Gmail users along with G Suite customers will have to opt-in into a new Early Adopter Program to access the new Gmail.
The new Gmail design is now being tested inside of Google and with trusted partners. Google has confirmed that the new design and features are coming within the coming weeks. On the other side, the confidentiality of mail content will be protected by a link, which only will be revealed after identity verification.
