Gmail to soon receive 'Confidential Mode' and 'Self-Destructing' Emails

  • Gmail for Android

According to the report, copy and paste and printing are not allowed in this mode. You might have noticed that the AI from smart speakers or the phone assistant is not able to pick out your voice when another person is talking at the same time. This includes Smart Replies which are already available on Gmail's mobile counterparts, snoozing messages for a later time and a few new layouts for how much information you'd like to have on the home page itself. As per some reports from the web, it seems like that Google is also working on a Confidential Mode which is said to bring the self-destructing emails along with some other privacy-focused changes.

According to TechCrunch, users can configure the expiration date to have their emails disappear after 1 week, 1 month, multiple years, etc. However, the feature is still under development, as the option "Learn More" now redirects to a blank page. As for recipients, they are expected to receive a link for expiring email which can be viewed by logging into their Gmail account again. The recipient will not be able to take a print out of this email or can not copy/paste the content as well.

While users of G Suite never have their emails scanned for other Gmail users, in 2014, Google updated its terms of service to ensure users had full transparency in the context of Google scanning their email content. Alongside the "self-destructing" feature Google will also allow the users to establish two-factor authentications by adding a passcode which will be generated by Google for private messages.

The five features for the new Gmail have limited explanation in the email, and even less was said by the company.

The stripped down user interface of Gmail has been popular since it was first launched in 2004.

End-to-end encryption is also not mentioned by Google anywhere. Unless protection is offered against the incredibly simple process of taking a screenshot of any supposedly confidential mail, the whole feature might well be useless, and will simply protect against inbox searches post the expiry of the email. Google also noted it would give more information about the eventual shutdown of the Gmail Offline Chrome app in an upcoming G Suite Updates blog post.
