Gmail to Bring Self-Destructing Email Feature to the Platform

LOST IN SPACE LOST IN SPACE

The company said in a recent email, obtain by The Verge, that the new interface will include new features and a "fresh, clean look for Gmail on the web", including smart reply, the option to snooze emails and offline support for emails. The publication's report notes that email services have to be compatible with multiple email providers and email clients. The new mode will also allow senders to restrict the recipient from copying, downloading, or even printing the email. If an email is sent in confidential mode, the recipient won't be able to forward email content, download, copy and paste, or print the email.

One downside to the new Gmail design and the self-destructing emails is that it's now unclear whether the feature will work on clients other than Google. 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 new Gmail design is now being tested inside of Google and with trusted partners. During an earnings call in 2016, Google revealed Gmail topped 1 billion users.

Further, Gmail will also ask the recipient to punch in an SMS passcode in order to confirm their identity, before the recipient is being allowed to see the email. Google has confirmed that the new design and features are coming within the coming weeks.

There are many similarities between ProtonMail and the new Gmail design, but one of the main differences between the two services is how they handle the self-destructing emails.

There has been no official announcement regarding the launch of this feature to the users in their entirety. That means you never have to leave your inbox to create a to-do list or reschedule a meeting.

We didn't overlook the part where emails self-destruct in the Gmail redesign, don't worry. Users will be able to select a date when the email will expire, after which the receiver will no longer be able to see the email. 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.
