But while the leaked screenshots showed numerous big changes in Gmail, info about a new feature that lets users send self-destructing emails is only starting to trickle out now.

Gmail will reportedly offer a feature that will allow users to set a self-destruction time when the message they send will no longer be viewable by the recipient, according to TechCrunch. To create Confidential email you have to click on that icon, than you can set the expiration date.

An email sent to G Suite administrators confirmed that the redesign is coming, with improved access to G Suite apps, such as Google Calendar, from within Gmail; Smart Reply; email snoozing; and offline support.

Gmail will have a so-called Confidential Mode, a system created to secure the important emails that users send and that should not reach other mailboxes.

Beyond that, judging by screenshots sent to TechCrunch, Gmail users will be able to choose when the email expires and disappears into the ether.

Still, in the wake of data privacy scandals like Facebook's recent Cambridge Analytica incident, it's nice to see companies like Google offering their users extra privacy features. While this is a convenient way to secure information, it also benefits Google by allowing the service to associate email addresses with cell phone numbers - adding to their database of customer information that they can use to better suit advertisements to their users. Additionally, the service could let senders an option to ask for recipient's identity with a passcode sent via text message. The report describes that on the recipient's side, the person used the existing version of Gmail and received a link to view the confidential email. Considering Keep can already pull double duty as a barebones to-do list, I'm hoping Google has some new features in tow. If you access it from your email, it's mostly a simple check list with due dates. That means you never have to leave your inbox to create a to-do list or reschedule a meeting.

The ruling came about after a case brought against Google by Spaniard Mario Costeja Gonzalez, who wanted two newspaper articles dating back to 1998 to be deleted from the search results page. The features "won't stop people from taking a screenshot or a photo of an email", The Verge notes Friday.
