Google working on expiring emails for Gmail

Both men were challenging Google's refusal to remove some links which contained information about their criminal past

Google sent an email to G Suite customers to tell them that the company has been working on a brand new version of Gmail for the web.

Gmail's expiring emails will most likely be deleted from the recipient's inbox once expires.

TechCrunch in its story suggested that Self-destructing Email mode means sender can stop the recipient from downloading, forwarding, copying, or printing the email. Gmail's web interface hasn't changed in years - you can probably expect a new interface that follows Google's Material design language. This improved design includes the addition of features that are already available in the Gmail Inbox app, such as "snooze" (which lets you temporarily hold off certain emails until you're ready to read them) and "smart reply" (which prompts you to answer messages quickly), according to The Verge.

Beyond that, judging by screenshots sent to TechCrunch, Gmail users will be able to choose when the email expires and disappears into the ether.

Therefore, Gmail will allow you to encrypt certain sensitive emails. Also, the new feature will be smoothly embedded in the compose screen of the Gmail website which will make it easier for the users to switch to the "Confidential Mode". 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. Recipients will then receive an e-mail that requires them to click a link and input their Google credentials to view the e-mail.

When exactly will emails self-destruct?

Google has confirmed that the new design and features are coming within the coming weeks.

Supporters point out that the court specified Google should not remove links to information when the public's right to know about it outweighs an individual's right to privacy - for example when a politician or public figure seeks to clean online records.

We're working on some major updates to Gmail (they're still in draft phase).

So, no flames. No need to panic. The sidebar allows you to carry out tasks side by side with your email messages.
