  • Gmail's'confidential mode lets you set expiration dates on emails

If you've followed along with the leaks in recent weeks, none of the new features will surprise you.

Gmail web or app will suggest you unsubscribe from newsletters or commercial messages you don't open.

But let's start from the beginning.

How will the new Gmail be received? Those messages get moved back to the top of your inbox with a warning. There's also a link to the new "snooze" feature here.

Attachments can also be viewed and downloaded without opening the email. Oddly enough, the snooze feature is only available from the inbox. "'Nudges" is another new feature which accompanies this new Gmail upgrade. Gmail doesn't know if you actually replied to a message in real life, on the phone, or in a text.

Smart replies, a feature that has been available on the Gmail mobile app, will now be available for web users as well, allowing you to quickly reply to messages. You can turn on the confidentiality mode while writing a mail. You can't stop anybody from taking a picture of the screen of course, but what's maybe more important here is that if anybody ever hacked the recipient's account, that email with your confidential information will be long gone. Users will also be able to make a message expire after a set period of time. It comes as the Gmail refresh is starting to roll out more widely, but there's also a separate app for Android, iOS, and the web that you can try even if you don't use Google's email app.

She broke into Chapman's and cleaned up the glass so the victim didn't realize someone was in her home, " the chief reported. A wife ended her life after allegedly shooting a woman she believed was having an affair with her husband, police say.


As we mentioned, this new update has costed Google a hefty amount.

Additionally, Gmail has introduced an offline mode, which allows individuals to store up to 90 days of emails - this feature is expected to be launched very soon. Gmail Add-ons will also appear here, while that side panel is coming to Calendar, Drive, and other G Suite apps in the coming months.

As the sender, the content will remain in your inbox, securely encrypted, and you can revoke access at any time. To accomplish this, Gmail will be rolling out new 'Confidential' button which will be embedded in the Compose section while sending the emails. Ruth Porat, CFO of Gmail did offer some data about the expenditure by stating that most cash burns happened as a result of hardware purchases to support expanding the use of machine learning, which plays a main role in automated programs and features like the ones that can identify spam and sorting emails on basis of importance. Like before, you can choose between three density settings: default, comfortable and compact.

Until now, the permanence of email has been problem; once you've sent a message to someone, it's in their inbox forever unless they decide to delete it.

You can opt into the new Gmail today, and it will become an opt-out change in the coming months.

Smart Reply gives you suggestions for quick replies to messages. You can still sort and filter emails into different folders/categories. Due dates with notifications can also be added to tasks and integration with G Suite means emails can be dragged and dropped into Tasks to make a to-do item. Maybe that'll come later. Personal Gmail users will be able to try the new features as well, by going to Settings and looking for "Try the new Gmail". As usual, you'll be able to switch back and forth at first. Google will surface contextual replies for emails that don't need much thought, allowing you to deal with a barrage of emails with little effort.
