GETTYGoogle look set to release a major Gmail update in the coming weeks

Google Gmail update 2018

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.

The Houston Rockets are averaging 112.4 points on 46 percent shooting and allowing 103.9 points on 46.2 percent shooting. He'll have to be an absolute monster inside if the T-Wolves want any chance of winning some games in this series.

Google isn't revealing exactly what the new design for Gmail looks like, but the company did recently launch a new design for Google Calendar.

"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.
