Gmail Offering Self-Destructing Email Feature

The Google users can see these changes for themselves very soon. Similarly, the actual security offered by this concept may also be limited, as the TechCrunch report notes that there is no control mechanism preventing the user from taking a screenshot of the message.

The search engine giant has another feature up its sleeve called "confidential mode" that will allow users to limit what recipients can do with the emails you send, preventing them from being forwarded, downloaded or printed, according to another report in The Verge. The changes are expected to be effective in the coming weeks. The interface, which combines the existing Gmail interface with some aspects of the "Inbox by Gmail" concept, includes direct access to Google Calendar from Gmail, as well as the AI-generated smart reply option that has been part of the mobile app version of Gmail since last May.

The California-based company could also showcase updates to Google Chrome, Google Photos, Android Wear, Google Home, and more.

In a statement to The Verge, Google revealed: "We're working on some major updates to Gmail (they're still in draft phase)".

Yankees, Tigers Washed Out
The Yankees and Tigers were rained out Saturday in what had been New York's only scheduled visit to Detroit this year. Game 1 was scratched about three hours before the scheduled first pitch, with Game 2 called in the early afternoon.

I/O brings together developers from around the globe for talks, hands-on learning with Google experts, and a first look at Google's latest developer products. This upgrade lets you share more photos, files and videos than ever before using the service. In addition, you'll be able to set an expiration date for the message so it becomes unreadable after a time period the sender can set. Upon selecting to compose a new email, users would get the option to compose it in "confidential mode".

If you're sent an expiring email you want to secretly squirrel away, all you need to do is capture an image of the screen to peruse the message at your leisure.

Of course, compatibility may be an issue here - particularly as receivers are asked to confirm their Google accounts in order to open confidential mode emails. Not to mention if users OR senders are utilising POP3/IMAP/SMTP to access their inbox.

For messages that are sent in confidential mode and received using a mail client like Outlook or Apple Mail, users will simply receive a message with a link that opens in a browser where the security features will be invoked. "You can open it by clicking this link".
