Google: Gmail will get a 'major' redesign soon

Leaked screenshots reveal what's in store for browser users, including a number of new features that are now only available inside Google's mobile apps.

The Gmail redesign is most likely not going to be the only change we'll be seeing soon though.

Offline email storage: The new Gmail will support the new web standards for storing information right in your browser, as they are gradually stepping away their Chrome Apps. It will also include a number of useful new features, and easy access to other G Suite apps, such as Google Calendar. Many people do have a Gmail account at this point in time, but for emails between business, for example, the new Gmail design may not mesh well with existing infrastructure. Users will be able to choose from three different layouts in the future: Compact, Default and Comfortable. This means, like Google Inbox, there will be a "snooze" feature on Gmail after the new design has been rolled out. When Google launched Inbox in 2014, it introduced a radical transformation that left many wondering where Gmail stood.

The self-destructing emails in the new Gmail design seem to function like the popular client ProtonMail, and when a new "confidential" mode, you can make it so that an email becomes unreadable after a certain amount of time. "Unfortunately users can't always decide on the type of device they have or the kind of connection they are on‚" commented Google Africa chief marketing officer‚ Mzamo Masito. Specifically, a "fresh, clean look". The new features will be made available to regular G Suite users as well its paid customers as part of an early adopter program in a few weeks time. The revision states, "Our automated systems analyse your content (including emails) to provide you personally relevant product features, such as customised search results, tailored advertising, and spam and malware detection".

Like other services that allow you to send disappearing messages, such as Snapchat and Instagram, Gmail's confidential mode doesn't prevent someone from taking a screenshot or photo of the email.
