Gmail receives a new design and a slew of add-ons

Gmail's getting a major update on desktop and mobile

For consumers and for the four million paying businesses that use Gmail as part of their subscription to Google's G Suite, the biggest update is a new Gmail confidential mode for protecting sensitive content. A new update to the iOS and Android Gmail app will bring high-priority notifications, which will notify you of important messages, and unsubscribe suggestions. What that means is that the email can be revoked at the expiration of a set date.

Gmail's revamped Inbox view allows attachments to be viewed straight from the subject line, so you won't have to open the mail to see its contents.

We're also adding Smart Reply to Gmail on the web to help you reply to messages faster. You can also make the email expire after a set period of time. When using it, you can opt to disable the recipients ability to forward, copy, download or print messages. You simply press it and pick a time for when you want the new email to resurface.

The redesign with these new features is rolling out right now.

In the past few years, there have been several high-profile phishing scandals through email, and Gmail is aiming to fight that possibility. By more intuitively tapping into Gmail, which has just launched its fancy redesign.

The new Gmail also introduces some powerful security features, such as the ability to time-limit an email so that it can not be read after a user-set deadline, and the ability to prevent users from forwarding, copying, downloading, or printing a specific message accidentally.

Snooze for Gmail works just like it does with Inbox.

With Gmail, Google said it restructured email storage databases, unified three duelling systems for syncing messages across devices and upgraded computers underpinning the service.

One of the biggest changes is to the increase in security. There's a brand new self-destructing email mode, as well as high-priority notifications.

So What's New In New Gmail?

When Nudging is enabled, Gmail will proactively remind users about messages they still need to respond to, so they don't forget. A side panel will also be added to G Suite that allows users to interact with Calendar, Tasks and Google Keep together while in Gmail.

Gmail's extensive update is primarily aimed at business customers and G Suite users as Google seems desperate to outperform Microsoft Corp's office workplace software suite which still leads in the segment. That's not going to work for everyone, though - some people will want to configure things more precisely.
