Gmail's Refreshed Desktop Design Goes Live With Improved Security And New Features

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

Disappearing email. The new Condfidential Mode lets you send emails that vanish from the recipient's inbox after a period you specify-sort of like a Snapchat for corporate correspondence-or which you can revoke after you've sent them.

When you open an email, you'll see Smart Reply options - another feature that Gmail app users will be familiar with.

Google started to roll out the new Gmail interface today.

Google has added "confidential mode" to the new Gmail which will prevent users from copying, downloading or printing the email.

We knew a significant Gmail redesign was in the works, and that it was only a matter of time until Google made it available to Gmail users. Google's intention is to then make the new Gmail switch on by default, but give users to the option to switch back - before finally pulling the plug on the old Gmail entirely. The app will surface attachments and files in Google Docs, Sheets and Slides right below the subject line while you're scanning your inbox, folders and search results, so you don't need to dig through all the messages in a thread to find what you're looking for. The majority of these additions are borrowed from the other Gmail platform Google launched years ago and forgot to update midway - Inbox.

Slightly less excitingly, Google will also be increasing the size of the banners it puts on top of dodgy emails warning of phishing attempts and the like, to really hammer home to users that they shouldn't click the links within.

Gmail will now even ask users whether they want to unsubscribe to mailing lists, if it notes that they get a lot of emails from a particular list but never read them. The tools work even with emails sent to non-Gmail accounts. Recipients are unable to forward, copy and paste, download or print content.

Anything that's unread but not been responded to, Gmail will "nudge" users about, highlighting the age of the message next to it in yellow text and asking whether users would like to reply.




"High-priority notifications is a new setting that only notifies you of important messages, keeping interruptions to a minimum".

The majority of the functionality detailed above is accessible through a menu that appears when you hover over individual emails in your inbox.

The other major new feature in this update is "confidential mode".

But, numerous new Gmail features revolve around getting you the information you need without having to click through to an individual email and open it up.

As you can see in the animation above, attachments also get featured so you can get to them without opening messages. You can still use the Priority Inbox and star messages, for example. On a 13.3-inch Apple MacBook Pro, the old Gmail shows more emails in all three display modes.

So that's the new features.

Businesses in the G Suite Early Adopter Program can turn on the new Gmail in the Admin console, but not all features will be available at the same time.
