Google to Introduce Self-destructing Email Feature in Gmail

Google to Introduce Self-destructing Email Feature in Gmail

In addition, the sender is given the option to set an expiration time/date for the email ranging from hours to years.

Another notable change will be the introduction of a "snooze" feature, which will allow users to set incoming emails to reappear at a later time.

From Android phones to what we watch on YouTube, even our work and personal email are mostly done through Google's Gmail service.

Google is working on a big redesign for Gmail on the web, it confirmed this week. Clicking on one of the icons in the thin vertical bar in the top right corner appears to pull the respective app in, while still giving the user a clear view of the whole inbox, as seen above. The design now features elements of Google's Material Design standard along with plenty of new features that bring Gmail up to date. And as we inch closer to the official launch, reports of the new features have begun pouring in abundance.

As of now, there is no information about this feature being available to non-Gmail users.

The smart reply feature might also see the actual messages included within rounded boxes. The three options include a default view that highlights attachments, a comfortable view that does not highlight those attachments and a compact view that is nearly the same as the current Gmail design (for those who don't like change). The redesign also features a new sidebar that lets you put Google Calendar, Google Keep or tasks side-by-side with your email.

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.

Google is also keen to lure in more developers to build an app for Gmail Add-ons. The update is also expected introduce smart reply, and easy ways to access G-Suite apps from within Gmail.

Earlier this week we delivered word of Google's forthcoming revamp of its Gmail web client, likely to officially debut at the I/O conference next month.
