This week, a brand new design was leaked by TechCrunch for the web version of Gmail, along with several new features including Smart Reply from the web client, the ability to snooze emails, and offline support. The publication's report notes that email services have to be compatible with multiple email providers and email clients.

They said Google apps will be better integrated with "easy access" to services like Calendar from within Gmail. Corners are rounded, there's a hamburger menu in the top left next to a fresh Gmail logo, and the red "Compose" button has been replaced with a white, circular one with a colorful "+" icon. 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. It's less dramatic - and it's due to a security feature Google will test out on the new Gmail. However, since recipients are still able to screenshot a message, it's not a guarantee of privacy.

Other tech giants have taken a similar approach in developing markets but found a ready audience in developed markets where users face similar storage problems because of the wealth of features in apps.

Google demonstrates its new AI model using a series of videos including one of two stand-up comedians talking loudly at the same time (which you can watch below), and its effectiveness is startling.

As of now, it's unknown whether the feature is going to be compatible with non-Gmail users.

Instead, Gmail sends the recipient a dummy email with a hyperlink to the actual self-expiring message, which is what actually disappears when time expires.

Users can choose from three view setting - now "Display density" - for their inbox. G Suite customers and the regular Gmail accounts may receive the updates and some of the compatibility aspects checked out and then the rollout may happen.

With the upcoming changes, users will also able to mute their emails for a specified amount of time, like snoozing notifications on a smartphone to clear up the screen.
