Gmail revamp brings confidential mode, email snoozing and nudges

If you hover over any email in your inbox, you'll see a few quick action icons that let you archive, delete, mark as read, RSVP to invites, and snooze the email so it shows up later.

Google is now also using these same AI smarts to bring to the web its smart replies feature, which you are probably familiar with from the Gmail mobile apps.

Separate from snoozing, but infused with a magic sprinkling of artificial intelligence is a new feature called "nudging" which calls your attention to emails that Google thinks you might need to respond to before a deadline.

One of the most exciting new features is a "confidential mode" that prevents people from copying, forwarding, downloading and printing the emails you send them.

Google also added Smart Reply to Gmail on the web to help you reply to messages faster.

The Gmail app is getting fewer upgrades as part of the overhaul, but one significant change is a new way of handling notifications for the app. The changes are coming to consumers too-keep an eye out for a "Try the new Gmail" option in the settings at the top right of your screen-but there's a big focus on business users here. Notwithstanding, the choice wasn't accessible for us right now, so the take-off is by all accounts slower than anticipated. You can also set messages to expire after a while, which could prove useful on numerous occasions.


Tasks is the go-to productivity app for millions of G Suite users, but it has been lacking proper mobile support.

You can also add two-factor authentication to these secure emails, and the recipient will have to use a passcode received via text messages to read it. You can also switch back to classic Gmail down the road.

Say you're about to share data with somebody that you wouldn't want to be forwarded, copied, downloaded, or printed. You can add different tasks or things you need to get done by hitting the big blue "Add a new task" button.

Google is hoping that the new additions like confidential mode and 2FA on a per-message basis will cut down a hacker's ability to access sensitive information, particularly at large organizations. It will push emails it identifies as important to the top of your inbox, but only three a day. Then it will become the only option for new users, and finally become the only option - however, Google's timescales are flexible and based on when people are comfortable with the changes. Google redesigned Gmail's security warnings to more prominently label potential phishing traps or other high-risk emails, a welcome addition especially given Gmail's recent scam issues.

It's worth pointing out that many standard Gmail features aren't going anywhere. Attachments can also be viewed without opening an entire email thread. "That move to Google's self-created Tensor processing chip empowers features such as "nudges" to react to overlooked messages and" suggested replies" to the messages. You can even search through up to 90 days of messages, thanks to local caching.
