Google to Introduce Self-destructing Email Feature in Gmail

Google to Introduce Self-destructing Email Feature in Gmail

In the compose window of Gmail, there is a small lock icon named "Confidential Mode", which states that the email recipient won't be able to forward email content, copy and paste, download or print the email.

The JEDI cloud contract aims to fully integrate all military services, but Google employees could have similar concerns about what the technology ultimately helps the military accomplish. Snooze and Smart Reply are both currently part of Google's Inbox app for Gmail, and both features are now making their way to Gmail on the web.

"You can configure the expiration date so that your email disappears after 1 week, 1 month, multiple years, etc.", Tech Crunch writes.

Google demonstrates its new AI model using a series of videos including one of two stand-up comedians talking loudly at the same time (which you can watch below), and its effectiveness is startling. However, the feature is still under development, as the option "Learn More" now redirects to a blank page. As for recipients, they are expected to receive a link for expiring email which can be viewed by logging into their Gmail account again.




While an official public announcement has not yet been made by Google, an email sent out to G Suite administrators recently revealed that Gmail will soon have a new look.

TechCrunch, who received the information from a tipster with early access, points out this could be a ploy to get more Gmail users' phone numbers.

The password-protecting of email is something that will be welcomed by many users, and it is going to be implemented through the use of a code sent out via SMS. When users try to open an expired e-mail, they'll find an expired link to the message and will no longer be available for viewing. Google has not mentioned end-to-end encryption anywhere, which means the company is most likely to stick with non-encrypted emails. The Verge notes, though, that recipients will still be able to take screenshots or photos of these confidential emails. Enter your email to be subscribed to our newsletter.
