This Gmail Will Self Destruct: Confidential Mode Is Coming

Adjust Comment Print

In plain English - or at least as plain as highly-technical talk can get - such word vectors help computers like Google's revolutionary, world-popular search engine understand phrases and chains of words that web users enter into its interface.

Besides, we now find out a new surprise feature integrated by Google.

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.

"Working on an email service is hard as you have to be compatible with all sorts of email providers and email clients".

When composing an email it appears users will be able to click a lock that prevents the contents of said communication being forwarded, copied, pasted, printed or downloaded.

Google confirmed a new Gmail is on the way in a statement sent to The Verge. However, that doesn't seem to stop Google, as the company is now going beyond the POP3/IMAP/SMTP protocols.

After facing employee fury over a US Defence Department project, Google is reportedly drafting new ethical standards to guide the company's use of technology and products. When it expires, it is automatically deleted from the inbox and the sender's inbox. Google is now testing the new template inside the company, as well as with some trusted partners. The Verge notes, though, that recipients will still be able to take screenshots or photos of these confidential emails.

It can also purportedly be used to prevent recipients from copying, downloading, or printing the content of the email. When a user sends an email using the confidential mode, the mail will look like any other email. The compact view is the most similar to the existing Gmail design, allowing existing users to keep a similar layout. The message behind the link disappears after some time, but this doesn't mean that the intermediate email also disappears.
