Google working on expiring emails for Gmail

Gmail’s current design as viewed on the web

Google also notes that the update might break some popular browser add-ons for Gmail, such as Clearbit, Streak, etc.

Just a few days ago we reported about the upcoming redesign of Gmail on the web. The new design includes some subtle elements of Google's Material Design, and a number of new features that were originally introduced for Google's Inbox overhaul of Gmail. Moreover, when you activate the confidential mode the emails can't be copied, printed or forwarded. Another report by TechCrunch has also discovered that the new Gmail is likely to have a feature that a lot of users might find very useful. As per some screenshots, users will be able to set an expiration date so that the sent email disappears or is unreadable after a week or several years depending on what they choose.

Google is implementing smart replies for Gmail on the web, the same feature from mobile Gmail that provides suggestions to quickly reply to emails.

In conclusion, the new surprising Gmail feature, Confidential Mode, will permit users to encrypt their sensitive emails so they won't be accessed by third-parties.

However there is a catch, a recipient can still screenshot the mail and can use it as per his/her convenience.

The redesigned Gmail for web users will be available in the coming weeks. 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".

It is being speculated that Google is not deleting any emails, instead, it is simply destroying the go-between links so that the content can't be read. The addition of Confidential Mode will grant users greater control over the emails they send, giving them the option of adding password protection to a message so they can not be opened by unauthorized people.
