Google is redesigning Gmail to streamline the user experience

The user has a web client as well as apps for android and iOS. Both of those features are already available for smartphone users of the Gmail app.

A fuller view of changes to Google's product lineup is expected as part of the Google I/O conference next month.

Google is testing a feature called "confidential mode" in Gmail, which allows users sending mail to other Gmail users to set an expiration date for their correspondence, and informs the user that "Options to forward, download, or copy this email's contents and attachments will be disabled".

Gmail users who use Confidential Mode will be able to stop recipients from forwarding select emails.

It's also worth noting that end-to-end encryption hasn't been mentioned.

Here are six changes that you will see when Google launches its new look in May.

United Kingdom and UK are warning that Russian Federation has been hacking routers worldwide
The joint report didn't identity any companies that have been affected, or the number of devices that have already been hacked. Globally, this effort had targeted millions of machines to spy on ISP customers, organizations and government agencies.

This news follows earlier reports of a complete redesign of the Gmail interface in development.

"We need a bit more time to compose ourselves, so can't share anything yet-archive this for now, and we'll let you know when it's time to hit send". Google uses machine learning to tune Smart Reply's suggestions to your writing style, so the more you use it, the more useful it gets.

There's now no word on a final release date for the new Gmail, however, a message to early access testers hints at a launch date in the coming weeks. Once you click it, you can configure when you want the email to disappear. Snooze can be a godsend if you get a lot of emails, receive one when you don't have time to answer, and forget about it when the incoming flood pushes it off your screen.

The self-destructing email's time limit can also be specified by the sender. It will consist of the ability to restrict emails, and this new feature will also be targeted at businesses that want and require enhanced control over the way that emails are used by recipients. Finally, an email can be locked behind a two-factor authentication process to ensure that only the intended recipient can read it. The default layout highlights attachments while a "comfortable view" does away with the attachment highlight.

Unfortunately, for all the precautions included in Gmail's new Confidential Mode, it is impossible to prevent users from taking a screenshot of the contents of an email.
