The news comes after some outlets reported on leaks of a possible upcoming Gmail redesign. The compact view will be similar to the current Gmail design, something that current users should be happy about.

The expiring emails feature works similarly to the expiring emails feature in ProtonMail as the email becomes unreadable after some time. Presumably this only happens on non-compatible clients. While this is a convenient way to secure information, it also benefits Google by allowing the service to associate email addresses with cell phone numbers - adding to their database of customer information that they can use to better suit advertisements to their users.

Infosys Q4 net up 2.4 per cent
Infosys had reported a 7.4% dollar revenue growth (8.3% in constant currency terms) and a 24.7% operating margin in 2016-17. Infosys CEO Salil Parekh is definitively moving away from a path that predecessor Vishal Sikka charted.

In what is called "confidential mode", Gmail will let users set an expiration date on emails so that, after a certain point, recipients can't forward, copy, download or print these messages. TechCrunch's tipster Chaim also discovered an interesting new feature in the new Gmail. Hopefully, if both people are on the redesigned version of Gmail, the message will just appear, and the Gmail client can handle the confidentiality requirements in the background.

To activate this feature, it looks like users will simply need to tap the small lock symbol located in the bottom portion of Gmail's "compose email" window. The sidebar allows you to carry out tasks side by side with your email messages. Like ephemeral stories, these emails will be automatically cleared as soon as they're in the inbox for a specific time period. When users try to open an expired e-mail, they'll find an expired link to the message and will no longer be available for viewing.

Is there anything in our lives that Google does not have a say in? The message behind the link disappears after some time, but this doesn't mean that the intermediate email also disappears. It also makes use of Google's most advanced compression algorithm, using up to 40% less data to display search results. The Verge notes, though, that recipients will still be able to take screenshots or photos of these confidential emails. Enter your email to be subscribed to our newsletter.
