The all-new design brings a slew of changes, including the ability to quickly reply to emails with an automatically-regenerated response, and snooze emails to a later time. In an email to G Suite administrators, obtained by The Verge, the company says the new design will include "several new features" that will also be made available to regular Gmail accounts. This feature is already available for people who use the Inbox by Gmail app or Boomerang, a third-party Gmail tool. By the time this feature is rolled out to all users, the exact mechanics of the feature may work differently than described-the utility of an un-downloadable attachment, as the above text implies, is somewhat limited.

The new design is also set to feature a sidebar which incorporates Google Calendar and Keep, Google's note taking app, which should help to make appointments and keeping on top of tasks a little easier.

Here are six changes that you will see when Google launches its new look in May.

Google is set to overhaul the design of Gmail in next couple of weeks and now details of a few new features, including self destructing emails, have leaked online. Google has been trying to implement their entire ecosystem for some time now, and this design is a good step in the right direction for Gmail users. "You can open it by clicking this link".

It can also purportedly be used to prevent recipients from copying, downloading, or printing the content of the email.

The updated Gmail on desktop is also set to include two of the best features that are now available in Inbox by Gmail - Google's other email app. This icon will not only allow you to set an expiration date of a sent email but there's also a "Require Passcode" option that you can select if you want the recipient to confirm their identity with a passcode sent via SMS. Finally, an email can be locked behind a two-factor authentication process to ensure that only the intended recipient can read it.

Google's Gmail redesign will be available in the coming weeks as an early access program for G Suite customers and personal Gmail accounts.
