Google Launches New Gmail Design Soon

Google is testing a feature called "confidential mode" in Gmail, which allows users sending mail to other Gmail users to set an expiration date for their correspondence, and informs the user that "Options to forward, download, or copy this email's contents and attachments will be disabled". This is perhaps the most useful part of the redesign that makes it easier to schedule meetings, or see when you're free when replying to an email. It is speculated that this new feature is closely going to follow the update in Gmail's interface. The user has a web client as well as apps for android and iOS. The new design features new icons along with a flatter, bolder layout.

For those of us who can't deal with the onslaught of messages in our inbox but really need to do not forget to reply to a certain message, Google will be offering some help in the form of a snooze button. It's likely that all the new features included in Gmail and its new design will be revealed during Google I/O developer conference which starts May 8th. It will give you the option to put a time limit onto an email that you send and after it expires, it will be rendered unreadable. It's unclear if the passcode feature will work for non-Gmail users, TechCrunch noted.

Here are six changes that you will see when Google launches its new look in May. On the bottom of your email with the new design, there will also be "smart replies". This upgrade lets you share more photos, files and videos than ever before using the service.

Snooze an email - You tag an email with a time stamp and it disappears from your inbox and reappears at the time you've chosen. You can tag the email with a convenient time and it will be right there at the top of your inbox when you have the freedom to respond. The redesign also includes the ability to snooze emails, making them reappear as unread emails after a duration of the users' choosing, according to the notice. Finally, an email can be locked behind a two-factor authentication process to ensure that only the intended recipient can read it. The compact view is the most similar to the existing Gmail design, allowing existing users to keep a similar layout.
