Gmail web users can now hit 'snooze' after Google redesign

With an eye on business users, Google is adding a "confidential mode" to Gmail that lets you restrict how an email can be forwarded, copied, downloaded, or printed.

Revealing the new-look G Suite today, Google doubled down on efforts to help users manage email overload - if not to achieve inbox zero - and stay on top of their to-do lists with a new Tasks feature that syncs across Gmail and Google Calendar.

The sidebar also features Google Keep for note taking (though sadly, it doesn't look like you can attach notes to emails or even drop them into a note) and Google Tasks.

Businesses in the G Suite Early Adopter Program can start trying out the new features on Wednesday, by turning them on in the admin console.

Recently, Gmail users received controversial spam messages and Google explained its users about its originality and releived the fears of its users.

You can turn on the confidentiality mode while writing a mail.

The new Gmail also offers a lot to users from a business and corporate perspective. A new Nudging feature will remind you to read and reply to emails the AI deems important, you'll be able to "snooze" some messages, hiding them until a predetermined time, and a new setting for high-priority notifications will reduce pop-up notices to only the most important messages. Instead of simply showing you the standard paperclip in your inbox to signify that an email chain includes an attachment, the new Gmail now highlights the attachments right underneath the message preview in the inbox view. You'll also be able to set an expiry date for messages sent in confidential mode, and put an unlock code on top of emails too for extra security. It's also much easier to access attachments without having to open an email.

Smart Replies are awesome on mobile, and they're coming to the web. Do you think confidential messages are a welcome addition? Starting today, users will see the new changes in Gmail for Web. Google will also pop up new elements called unsubscribe cards recommending you unsubscribe from senders or mailing lists that frequently end up unopened or deleted.

Anti-phishing enhancements. When Gmail thinks a message is suspicious, it will warn you via a big, billboard-like message that's impossible to ignore, rather than the more subtle alert it's used in the past. While there is also an iOS version, its listing is not live on the App Store as of now.

You can set a message to expire in 1 day to 5 years, and require the recipient to enter a passcode texted to their phone before they can read it. You can try it all out by clicking "Try the new Gmail" under settings in your Gmail account.

Finally, "smart replies" which auto-generate an appropriate response based on the contents of the email are making their way from Google's experimental "Inbox" app into the mainstream Gmail software.

The other new features will be familiar to anyone who has used Google Inbox, the company's more experimental email client.
