New design and features will be added in this update along with the ability to reply fast to emails, to snooze emails until later, and a new sidebar to place calendar appointments side by side with messages. "You can also ask your recipient to confirm their identity with a passcode sent via text message". Google has confirmed that the new design and features are coming within the coming weeks.
Google demonstrates its new AI model using a series of videos including one of two stand-up comedians talking loudly at the same time (which you can watch below), and its effectiveness is startling. The design will feature elements of Google's Material design.
Like other services that allow you to send disappearing messages, such as Snapchat and Instagram, Gmail's confidential mode doesn't prevent someone from taking a screenshot or photo of the email. In addition, the sender is given the option to set an expiration time/date for the email ranging from hours to years.
Google in its mail assured a "fresh, clean look for Gmail on the web,". According to the report, copy and paste and printing are not allowed in this mode. According to TechCrunch, the Confidential Mode feature could be released at the same time or could be delayed to a subsequent update.
We're working on some major updates to Gmail (they're still in draft phase). However, there are guesses to be made, as Google has recently launched a new design for Google Calendar with clearer design, glossy colors, and handsome icons.
There are a number of ways the technology could be used, and perhaps to allay the public's likely (and probably founded) concerns about privacy, Google has led with the rather dry example of speech recognition for automatic video captioning. "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", the company said in a statement.
"Google Go offers an easy way for users to specify an additional language for search and switch easily between English and Kiswahili", said Mr Murito.
