Google introducing Snapchat-style self-destructing messages in Gmail

GETTYGoogle look set to release a major Gmail update in the coming weeks
Gmail, the most used mail client is bringing some major changes to the application. Google promises a "fresh, clean look for Gmail on the web", with features like Smart Reply, the ability to snooze emails, and offline support.
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.
The blockbuster Gmail upgrade comes as Google is expected to announce more big news in the coming weeks.
It is similarly unclear how this feature interoperates with users of non-Google services. This will be especially useful for sending confidential emails or emails that you feel should be read and deleted for privacy purposes.
"We need a bit more time to compose ourselves, so can't share anything yet-archive this for now, and we'll let you know when it's time to hit send".
According to technology blog The Verge, the new feature allows Gmail users to control what happens to their message after it is sent. They can also ask the email recipient to confirm their identity with a passcode sent via text messages.
TechCrunch first confirmed the feature, including screenshots that reveal how it will work.
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. Not to mention if users OR senders are utilising POP3/IMAP/SMTP to access their inbox.
Gmail sent an email to its G Suite customers informing them of the changes.
Among the many features that were spotted earlier this week, TechCrunch reports that a Confidential Mode will also be introduced which will allow users to choose whether they want the recipient to be able to forward the email content, restrict them from copy and pasting, downloading or printing them, and even choose if they want the email to self-destruct.
This link will expire after a set period of time, meaning that the email has effectively disappeared.
Manchester City crowned champions as United crash
I want to see how we react now next season. "I think winning in Stamford Bridge gave us the confidence that we can do that". City are 16 points clear of second placed United, who can only take a maximum of 15 points from their remaining matches.

The camera appears to be a big focus with the Xperia XZ2 Premium, but it's not the only feature Sony's touting with its new phone. There is also a fingerprint scanner on the rear and keep in mind that this smartphone does not feature a 3.5mm audio jack.
Zuckerberg flubs details of Facebook privacy commitments
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg testified for 10 hours over two days before the House and Senate last week, but U.S. The social network is also facing a probe by United Kingdom data protection regulators and the European Commission.
Manchester City affirmed as Premier League Champions
I don't expect him to score two goals every week, either, but I would like him to be consistent to a certain level. This result will not have any significant effect on the league table beyond placing the title in City's hands.
