Users of Google Docs have had access to a pretty decent offline mode for some time now via the installation of a browser extension, and it appears similar functionality is coming to Gmail (albeit seemingly without the need for a separate browser extension). You can choose to have the email "expire", or become inaccessible, in one day, one week, one month, three months or five years.
We knew a significant Gmail redesign was in the works, and that it was only a matter of time until Google made it available to Gmail users. Available while composing an email, the mode provides senders with the option to prevent the recipient from forwarding, copying/ pasting, downloading, and printing the content in the email.
The new Gmail for web is here, and it's created to take the stress out of managing email overload. At the time of writing this report, changes to the web version of Gmail remains unchanged, though the Android app does reflect most of the additions mentioned in the update. That can protect data even if a recipient's account has been hacked, Google says.
Google has also transformed Tasks which was a to-do list tool that has been hidden in Gmail since 2008. Once turned on for a specific message, the user won't be able to copy, download, forward, or even print it. Gmail will start nudging you to follow up with emails you've received a few days ago and neglected. High Priority Notifications, as the name suggests, uses intelligence (with a little guidance from you) to ensure you only get bing-bonged when there's something important to see. You can open it directly from the inbox. One of the big changes is the new confidential mode meant for making it easier to send sensitive information via email.
Extra-secure messages. A two-factor authentication feature for Confidential Mode messages, which you can enable on a per-message basis, will require your receipient to receive a code via text message and enter it before opening your missive. If you like Google's automatic filters for promotional emails, social media updates, newsletters, etc., then you can still use those, too. Instead of simply showing you the standard paperclip in your inbox to signify that an email chain includes an attachment, the new Gmail now highlights the attachments right underneath the message preview in the inbox view. This essentially helps reduce the risk of confidential information being accidentally shared with the wrong people.
Businesses in the G Suite Early Adopter Program can start trying out the new features on Wednesday, by turning them on in the admin console. Suppose, if users want to trial the new redesign, they can go to settings in Gmail and click on "Try the new Gmail" link that may not be found sometimes.
