Google just can’t stop innovating!
It’s been some time that Google has been working on a major revamp of Gmail and redesigning the entire web interface. Now, recently a new report has come up and it claims that the search giant is working on a new update for the future that will include self-destructing email features.

Dubbed as the “confidential mode”, the screenshot of the feature was posted by the American online publisher of technology industry news, Tech Crunch. According to reports, with this confidential mode, users will be able to send emails with an expiry timeline, which means that the recipients will not be able to download, forward, copy and paste the email’s content or print those emails after a certain time period.
In addition to that, this upcoming confidential mode for Gmail will add an option of a passcode to read emails. Also, the passcode can be sent to the recipients’ phone via a text message. According to TechCrunch, as of now, it is not clear if this new feature will work with emails sent to non-Gmail users. Also, it’s worth seeing that the search giant is not mentioning the end-to-end encryption anywhere, as a “confidential” message doesn’t have to be encrypted.
Hopefully, in the coming weeks, ahead of the Gmail redesign launch, people will get to know a lot more about the all-new confidential mode.
