Google working on expiring emails for Gmail

Share

Google sent over a rather tongue-in-cheek confirmation that Gmail updates are coming soon.

The email was meant to prepare employees tasked with managing companies' G Suite apps - Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Sheets, etc. - to answer questions about the redesign as it's rolled out to personal accounts, meaning we could expect it to look noticeably different. The default layout highlights photos and attachments, a comfortable view doesn't highlight attachments, and a compact view increases the amount of messages visible on a single page.

IN AN era replete with fake news stories, you might expect video evidence to provide a clearer picture of the truth.

Google Calendar integration is being added. Yesterday, the redesign leaked early giving us an early look at what's in store for users. It will also allow you to access other G Suite apps, such as Calendar, directly from your inbox instead of maintaining six browser tabs for those various components.


Since Google is working on some major updates now, it looks like there are plenty of new features to get excited about it.

Today, we're learning that Google is looking to add a new feature to Gmail: self-destructing emails. Most of us know the feeling of getting an email that we know we need to deal with, but not having either the time or inclination at that very moment; problem is, all too often you then forget to go back to it later on. Snooze and Smart Reply are both currently part of Google's Inbox app for Gmail, and both features are now making their way to Gmail on the web. Users will likely see the new layout appear in the next few weeks.

The report says some people who pay for Google's suite of services, called GSuite, received messages asking if they wanted to participate in a program to preview upcoming changes - including a Gmail redesign.

However, the most exciting feature of all might be a new "Confidential Mode" revealed by reports on Friday. The redesign is expected to roll out to all Gmail users in the coming weeks. As the original, official smartphones that were manufactured and sold under the Google umbrella, the handsets generated a fair bit of buzz when they were announced and when they hit the market.
