Google Is Giving Gmail a Makeover

Google is also launching a new to-do list app called Tasks which will integrate with your new Gmail inbox

Confidential mode adds several new features to email that allow much more control over information after it leaves your inbox.

You can enable the new look and features by clicking on the Settings cog in the top-right corner, then selecting Try the new Gmail option.

Users of Google Docs have had access to a pretty decent offline mode for some time now via the installation of a browser extension, and it appears similar functionality is coming to Gmail (albeit seemingly without the need for a separate browser extension).

As expected, big addition is confidential mode. If you don't know Gmail, you know someone who does. To help speed up email composition, Gmail on the web gains a feature from the mobile apps - Smart Replies.

In the inbox pane, you have the availability to interact with the messages without even opening them.

Lastly, the platform now also adds integrated rights management or IRM which will allow business users to block copying, forwarding, downloading or printing a specific email or message. The company is also rolling out a new Google Tasks mobile app later today for iOS as well as Android.

"We've revisited some of the fundamentals of email security to make everyone's data safe", explained Jacob Bank, product manager of Gmail. Additionally, you'll be able to open attachments from the Inbox; no more having to go into an email.

This one likely falls under the total as well thanks to Minnesota cooling off from outside and Houston playing tighter defense. Gerald Green , who had 21 points and was a plus-21 in Game 2, had a mere ten points and was a team-worst minus-18.

These are enormously helpful, enabling you to drag emails straight into other apps, and manage your appointments without leaving your inbox.

It does this using the same technology as Smart Reply, which was introduced past year and suggests automatic responses to emails to save you typing them out.

The new redesign is aimed at getting you to do more with your email, without actually leaving the main inbox screen.

The changes to Gmail also fulfill another top demand of business executives - message expiration. Starting today, users will see the new changes in Gmail for Web. This new option will allow the mail to time-limit its access to recipients and will also require them to enter a one-time passcode sent to their phones to read it. Google is introducing features like attachments chips, hover actions, and hover cards to make the static inbox experience more interactive without the need for multiple clicks.

Yes, bizarrely, even though Gmail has included Tasks from the outset, this marks the first time it has had its own app.

High-priority notifications. Using Gmail's mobile apps, you'll be able to switch to a mode which only triggers notifcations for an incoming message if Gmail thinks it's important to you-based on factors such as how typically you respond to mail from the sender in question.

Chief Financial Officer Ruth Porat told analysts that half of the spending resulted from hardware purchases to support expanding use of machine learning, which describes automated programs that can, among other things, identify spam and predict which emails users would find most important.
