Gmail to Bring Self-Destructing Email Feature to the Platform

New design and features will be added in this update along with the ability to reply fast to emails, to snooze emails until later, and a new sidebar to place calendar appointments side by side with messages.

Google is reportedly planning to give Gmail a fresh new look by working on a new design for Gmail's interface. This time you are going to have the "snooze" feature that allows you to discard an email from the inbox for a certain amount of the time. The design will feature elements of Google's Material design.

Google has announced the launch of Google Go, a brand new app which will allows users to search and browse the web, while incurring less data charges.


Google has kept in mind all of its users and developed the Confidential Mode in a backward compatible way, which means that users of the earlier version of Gmail will also be able to receive the messages in Confidential Mode via a link. Some of the features of the new Gmail were detailed in media reports.

Google notes that these features will arrive first as a part of an Early Adopter Program [EAP] for G Suite customers, but that it will also be made available for personal Gmail accounts. "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", shared the spokesperson.

The design looked more like the mobile app meaning Gmail itself could be updated in a similar way.


"Users come to us to experience the web and access accurate information quickly", said Mzamo Masito, Google Africa Chief Marketing Officer.

Google is all set to roll out an updated Gmail and the tech giant has already begun notifying some of the G Suite users about the same. The Default View shows users the kind of attachments to their emails through different colored icons, while the Comfortable View uses the familiar paperclip icon to signal an attachment.

Google will hold this year's I/O developer conference from May 8 to May 10. Smart replies suggested users with quick responses to messages so as to save time while you're occupied with something else.
