According to a new report from The Verge, Google will also be introducing a new "Confidential Mode", which lets users stop recipients from forwarding certain emails. It further states that the recipient won't be able to forward, download or copy the email's contents, and attachments will be disabled.

Besides, we now find out a new surprise feature integrated by Google. It is still not clear whether the Gmail service users will be able to send the confidential/self-destructing emails to the other email platforms or not.

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. This passcode will be generated via SMS and there will also be an expiration date on sent emails.

Forman, Oscar-winning director of 'Cuckoo's Nest' and 'Amadeus', dies at 86
Never prolific, Forman's output slowed even more after " Amadeus ", and his three subsequent films were disappointments. First to actress Jana Brejchova (his lead actress in " Loves of a Blonde ") and then to Vera Kresadlova.

TechCrunch states that the feature isn't ready yet, as their source arrived at a non-existent page after clicking on the "Learn more" option to open Google's help articles. The receivers will need to log in again in Gmail to access the message. However, since recipients are still able to screenshot a message, it's not a guarantee of privacy.

However, in all likelihood there will be no protection against screenshots of the email, even if it has been set to self-destruct after a set timeframe, which can be any amount of days, weeks, months or years.

Google is revamping the web version of its popular email service, Gmail.

TechCrunch also pointed out that when a ProtonMail user sends an expiring message to another ProtonMail user, the email looks like a regular email in the box.

The new feature will likely be announced alongside Gmail's redesign for the web, which is expected to take place during Google's upcoming I/O developers conference starting May 8. That means they'll disappear from your outbox, and from the recipient's inbox. It is unclear if the "confidential" expiring mails will be end-to-end encrypted.
