Google working on expiring emails for Gmail

Google working on expiring emails for Gmail

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.

In a ruling last month, Paris judges said that Google had to reduce the visibility of stories about a former chief financial officer at a French company who was fined 200,000 euros (S$323,970) a year ago for civil insider-trading violations. Before we get to that, what we know so far is that the revamped Gmail could launch in the next few weeks and will perhaps be part of the Google I/O developers conference on May 8.

Now, a new leak suggests the refreshed Gmail will also attempt to make email more secure. Sending a confidential email to a non-Google address may not work, as it prompts the viewer to log into their Google account to access the private message. The company isn't revealing exactly what the new design for Gmail looks like. This will be especially useful for sending confidential emails or emails that you feel should be read and deleted for privacy purposes.

The expiration date of the self-destructing emails can be configured to suit your needs, with time windows ranging from one week to multiple years. The judge added that the plaintiff has show remorse for his actions, and the offense was also relatively minor. G Suite customers apparently received word about this Gmail redesign - so check your inbox ASAP because there's another important feature to take note of: emails self-destruct. It is speculated that this new feature is closely going to follow the update in Gmail's interface. The mails will have a "confidential mode" lock icon barring recipients to forward their content, copy and paste, download or print them.

Just as most smartphone cameras now allow users to focus on a single object among many, it may soon be possible to pick out individual voices in a crowd by suppressing all other sounds, thanks to a new Artificial Intelligence (AI) system developed by Google researchers.

As of now, there is no information about this feature being available to non-Gmail users. 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.

Rather, it hides them for a short period of time, allowing users to clean up their inbox.
