Attention Gmail users: your emails might 'self-destruct' soon

This week, a brand new design was leaked by TechCrunch for the web version of Gmail, along with several new features including Smart Reply from the web client, the ability to snooze emails, and offline support.

In a statement cited by the Post, Google acknowledged a "major" Gmail redo is in the works, but the company says it's only in "draft phase".

The new Gmail design also features a new sidebar, with the option of using Google's calendar, Keep note-taking app, or tasks side-by-side with your email messages.

"The crime and punishment information has become out of date, irrelevant and of no sufficient legitimate interest to users of Google Search to justify its continued availability, so that an appropriate delisting order should be made", Justice Warby of the High Court said, The Telegraph reported. Obviously, this new function will be appreciated by a particular group of businesses and users.

Besides, we now find out a new surprise feature integrated by Google.

During there are certainly sufficient big-screen gadget fans who continue to weaken for Google's releasing a new tablet, the possibilities of such a product making a quick start at the upcoming I/O 2018 event, or even this year's postulated Pixel product event later this year are less slim.

It also plans to integrate some of the features on its mobile app to make it clean and user friendly. The letters will also be thinner. If you ever check your Gmail on your phone, the changes won't seem that alien to you. It added that the new design will be extended to personal Gmail account holders as well.

So, if you send or receive messages to your Gmail inbox in "confidential mode", they will self-destruct (i.e. you can't copy, download or print them) upon the scheduled expiration date.

The app, the Internet giant said, is meant to address the challenges often faces by users in emerging markets: weak data connectivity, high data costs and low RAM and storage space on entry-level devices. Google I/O commences on May 8.
