  • Gmail’s current design as viewed on the web

There isn't much to ponder about the Gmail web design as Google hasn't revealed much yet.

Google is reportedly working on an overhaul of Gmail for web which will see a new design along with several new features, including a Confidential Mode. The new feature is similar to that of Outlook's email forward prevention functionality which was announced for Office 365. As the G Suite email, regular Gmail users along with G Suite customers will have to opt-in into a new Early Adopter Program to access the new Gmail. Now while the recipient of the email will not be allowed to copy and paste the content, some testers have found no issues in taking screenshots of the email, so it doesn't guarantee total privacy.

The report further suggests that the Confidential Mode is said to allow the users to send self-destructing emails which can be set to prevent the recipient from downloading, forwarding, printing or even copying email content. This icon will not only allow you to set an expiration date of a sent email but there's also a "Require Passcode" option that you can select if you want the recipient to confirm their identity with a passcode sent via SMS. Also, the new feature will be smoothly embedded in the compose screen of the Gmail website which will make it easier for the users to switch to the "Confidential Mode".

Google will be unlocking the redesign and its new features for G Suite and Gmail users in the coming weeks. But users can take screenshot or photo of email. The feature could be called "confidential mode". "As part of this effort, we'll introduce native offline support in the new Gmail experience by June 2018".

The features are nearly similar to some of the features found in Microsoft's full Outlook application as Microsoft is also adding the ability to restrict emails on its Outlook.com service. According to new reports by TechCrunch, the email service will receive an improved design and look, which seem to be aimed at achieving a better sense of minimalism.
