Gmail is about to get a redesign and major update

Google is set to overhaul the design of Gmail in next couple of weeks and now details of a few new features, including self destructing emails, have leaked online.

The expiring email feature works similar to the expiring emails feature in ProtonMail as the email becomes unreadable after sometime.

Now, more new features surface and show us that Google is seriously considering changing the Gmail experience quite a lot. This feature is already available for people who use the Inbox by Gmail app or Boomerang, a third-party Gmail tool.

Gmail is about to get a blockbuster new update.

Netflix shares dip as Wall Street braces for quarterly report
Now the hedge fund run by Karthik Sarma is holding 8.07 million shares, compared to the 10.49 million from the previous quarter. World reported 0.37% of its portfolio in Netflix, Inc . (NASDAQ: NFLX ). 1832 Asset Mngmt LP reported 287,918 shares.

Goolge announced that it would be rolling out a new Gmail soon.

The updated Gmail on desktop is also set to include two of the best features that are now available in Inbox by Gmail - Google's other email app. On the bottom of your email with the new design, there will also be "smart replies". There is also an option to have your sidebar on the opposite side of your email, which will allow users to use Google Keep or Google Calendar on the Gmail platform. This is perhaps the most useful part of the redesign that makes it easier to schedule meetings, or see when you're free when replying to an email. The recipient will have to log into their Google account to view it and you won't be able to copy and paste the message itself (although you can still apparently screen shot it).

I guess time will tell on that one. While confidential mode emails will disappear when you want them to, there's not guarantee that they are secure. You can tag the email with a convenient time and it will be right there at the top of your inbox when you have the freedom to respond. You can also require a passcode so the recipient can open it with a code that will be sent via text message. The redesign also includes the ability to snooze emails, making them reappear as unread emails after a duration of the users' choosing, according to the notice. Finally, an email can be locked behind a two-factor authentication process to ensure that only the intended recipient can read it.

The new design will feature three layout options: default, comfort, and compact.
