Gmail's redesign adds some welcome calendar integration

Gmail web revamp leaks w/ rounded design, sidebar widgets, Google Tasks, and more

Google introduces new 'More Results' button for mobile users

At the time Google had revealed it was working on adding some new features to Gmail, including Smart Reply, Smart Groupings, and Snooze - all staple's of Gmails smarter alter-ego, Inbox.

With the redesign, it's not clear whether Inbox will have much of a reason to stick around, but given the majority of Gmail users use the standard Web interface, it's probably a change for the better. However, some have speculated that if it doesn't happen in the next few weeks, the company may share more details about the redesign at Google I/O in May. If an email is sent in confidential mode, the recipient won't be able to forward email content, download, copy and paste, or print the email.

TechCrunch also reported that while a number of these security features did work, like no printing or copying, they were still able to take screenshots of the protected emails. Hopefully, if both people are on the redesigned version of Gmail, the message will just appear, and the Gmail client can handle the confidentiality requirements in the background. Users can also link spreadsheets, presentations and documents to their calendar to allow other attendees to look at them. The sidebar allows you to carry out tasks side by side with your email messages.

Davidson and Cohen were also in communication about a third agreement involving former Playboy centerfold Karen McDougal . Broidy, in turn, denied allegations, and said he wouldn't make legal claims either as long as she signed the contract.

In a statement to The Verge, Google confirmed the news. In 2017, Gmail had 1.2 billion active worldwide users. After the message expires, it is automatically deleted from the inbox and the sender's outbox.

Instead, Gmail sends the recipient a dummy email with a hyperlink to the actual self-expiring message, which is what actually disappears when time expires. It also makes use of Google's most advanced compression algorithm, using up to 40% less data to display search results. TechCrunch's report notes that a confidential message doesn't have to be encrypted, which means that it's likely that Google can still see the content of the email. On the other hand, Google generates an email with a link in Gmail's current implementation. Enter your email to be subscribed to our newsletter.
