Also, there might be other tools available in the market using which a user can record the email that they have received.

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. In addition to that, it will also let you secure emails by enabling password protection which will be automatically generated through SMS.

Google's updated email app is expected to be rolling out later this year.

In any case, Google I/O is next month, so chances are we won't have to wait too long to see the new Gmail ourselves.

As presented by TechCrunch, a small lock icon appears in the compose window for an email which represents "Confidential Mode".

The yet-to-be introduced feature works quite much like expiring emails in "ProtonMail" in which the email becomes unreadable after some time. The redesign brings features like quick reply, offline support to the web version of Gmail. The message behind the link disappears after some time, but this doesn't mean that the intermediate email also disappears. Considering Keep can already pull double duty as a barebones to-do list, I'm hoping Google has some new features in tow.

Shortly after reports of a new Gmail design, we now have a sneak peek at the new look of Google's email service, courtesy of our friends from Android Authority and The Verge. This move comes as Google is set to retire its Gmail Offline Chrome app. This will be especially useful for sending confidential emails or emails that you feel should be read and deleted for privacy purposes. It is very likely that the company will show off the new design and features during its Google I/O developer conference. It is speculated that this new feature is closely going to follow the update in Gmail's interface.

As of now, there is no information about this feature being available to non-Gmail users. The Verge notes, though, that recipients will still be able to take screenshots or photos of these confidential emails.

Google researchers have developed a deep learning system that can pick out specific voices by looking at people's faces when they're speaking.
