This feature will likely prove useful for business owners and professionals, many of whom spend hours a day checking and responding to emails. The first of these new features is "Confidential Mode", a tool that will allow users to prevent email recipients from forwarding, copying or downloading specific emails.

Moreover, Gmail will also allow you to set a deadline for certain emails, which, when reached, will trigger the automatic complete deletion of the chosen emails.

"The crime and punishment information has become out of date, irrelevant and of no sufficient legitimate interest to users of Google Search to justify its continued availability, so that an appropriate delisting order should be made", Justice Warby of the High Court said, The Telegraph reported.

The new Gmail design is now being tested inside of Google and with trusted partners.

It is believed that Google is working on a lock icon to activate the mode that will be introduced with the new design of the Gmail. Sending a confidential email to a non-Google address may not work, as it prompts the viewer to log into their Google account to access the private message. We'd seen drafts of a redesign dating back almost a year ago and heard some descriptions of the new look, but after yesterday's news, several sources shared images of the new design itself - including some new features. If a user is busy and unable to respond to a particular email, he or she can hit the snooze button.

What's up with the new Gmail?

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 design will feature elements of Google's Material design. These features will be an huge help to businesses that want more control over how emails are used by recipients. G Suite customers apparently received word about this Gmail redesign - so check your inbox ASAP because there's another important feature to take note of: emails self-destruct. Officially unveiling and launching the new look for Gmail at the annual event makes sense, so users may be looking at less than a month before they are able to enjoy the Gmail redesign and new features.

The company will host its annual developers conference May 8.

Keep in mind that Talk to Books just launched and it will be refined over time.
