Gmail Confidential Mode Brings Self-Destructing Emails And Identity Verification For Recipients

But while the leaked screenshots showed numerous big changes in Gmail, info about a new feature that lets users send self-destructing emails is only starting to trickle out now.

Google demonstrates its new AI model using a series of videos including one of two stand-up comedians talking loudly at the same time (which you can watch below), and its effectiveness is startling. It's not like your whole inbox will go up in flames.

TechCrunch in its story suggested that Self-destructing Email mode means sender can stop the recipient from downloading, forwarding, copying, or printing the email. The new feature will allow users to set the expiration date. Of course, these features won't restrict the receiver's ability to store the email's content via taking a screenshot or capture a photo from another device. The user will also be able to set password requirement, where the recipient has to confirm their identity via a code/OTP sent to the recipient as a text message to access the email.

Though not much details have been forthcoming from the company, observers link this move to the new design already unveiled in the Google Calendar app that saw new bright colors and modern icons and so on. Recipients will then receive an e-mail that requires them to click a link and input their Google credentials to view the e-mail.

Steven Pladl, 43, was discovered dead inside a auto parked in Dover, New York, at 8.40am on Thursday (US time). Pladl's wife - Katie's biological mother - moved out, telling police he planned to Wednesday their daughter.

According to the report, Google is planning to roll out all these features in the coming weeks, especially since the Google I/O developer conference is scheduled to start on May 8.

"Google has been making determinations about whether to remove criminal information, and this time they got it wrong", she said.

Major' Gmail update might convince you to use email again. "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", the company teased. The "Compact" view will remain the closest to the current Gmail design, while displaying the most messages on screen. And as a recipient, you'll have a clear idea of when these messages will "self-destruct".
