Google's upcoming Gmail re-design will include a confidential mode

When there is no internet connection, Google Go will retry failed search requests in the background and will notify the user when the search results have been retrieved. The "Compact" view will remain the closest to the current Gmail design, while displaying the most messages on screen. Here's what you need to know. After all, Gmail has looked the same for years. The new Gmail will allow for that, too. At least, not yet we aren't.

What's up with the new Gmail?

On Thursday, technology giant Google sent an email to G Suite administrators.

TechCrunch's test email was sent from a new Gmail user to a user on the old Gmail client, so a link was formed. We've been hearing about a Gmail redesign since past year. Additionally, you could also require a passcode (generated by SMS) to access an email, or have it expire on a certain date. Users will likely see the new layout appear in the next few weeks. That said, the Gmail site is going to get new functionality. What does the snooze feature do? The company is rumored to be including three layouts, a sidebar to view your calendar or notes, smart replies with prewritten responses and a snooze button to mute email threads until you're written to answer them.

Gmail is also taking some of its mobile-only features to the web, such as smart replies. Since confidential emails are not a standard email feature, how can they work for people who aren't Gmail users?

Yesterday, we reported that Google was about to give Gmail a major facelift. It features a new sidebar consisting of Google Calendar, Google Keep, and Tasks.

According to the tipster who spilled the news to TechCrunch, there's already a help page for the feature but it's now not populated with any information - suggesting that the self-destructing emails of the new Gmail design is under development but not ready for release at this point in time. The market seems to be just as happy with the news because Google is now trading up almost 20%. The news is pretty exciting as Gmail hasn't been revamped in a while.
