Gmail redesign could feature self-destructing emails

Google Launches Demo Of Natural Language Processing With AI

But while the leaked screenshots showed numerous big changes in Gmail, info about a new feature that lets users send self-destructing emails is only starting to trickle out now. You'll know this if you've ever tried to say something to your smart speaker while someone else is talking at the same time.

Google has just launched a new service called Talk to Books and it leverages machine learning.

Will my emails self-destruct? It's not like your whole inbox will go up in flames.

According to an email sent to G Suite administrators, Google has announced plans to reveal a newer look to Gmail for web as well as a slew of new features.

All of these new features including Gmail's new interface will be accessible for G Suite customers and personal Gmail account holders. The addition of Confidential Mode will grant users greater control over the emails they send, giving them the option of adding password protection to a message so they can not be opened by unauthorized people. There also appears to be a self-destruct button of sorts, via a customizable expiration date that allows the user to send the email into the ether after a time period of the user's choosing-whether that's a week, month, or even a few years.

Swedbank Increased Stake in Jpmorgan Chase & (JPM) as Shares Rose
In other JPMorgan Chase news, EVP Peter Scher sold 17,057 shares of the company's stock in a transaction on Tuesday, January 16th. RBC Capital Markets restated a "buy" rating on shares of J P Morgan Chase & Co in a research report on Saturday, December 17th.

Google has kept in mind all of its users and developed the Confidential Mode in a backward compatible way, which means that users of the earlier version of Gmail will also be able to receive the messages in Confidential Mode via a link. They then added virtual noises mimicking a crowd, all playing at the same time, to teach the system to separate multiple audio tracks into different parts so it could learn to differentiate between each sound.

The new Gmail design also features a new sidebar, with the option of using Google's calendar, Keep note-taking app, or tasks side-by-side with your email messages.

We're working on some major updates to Gmail (they're still in draft phase).

So, no flames. No need to panic. The main objective of the new design is to give users, a much more consistent user experience.
