Gmail to Bring Self-Destructing Email Feature to the Platform

However, the most exciting feature of all might be a new "Confidential Mode" revealed by reports on Friday.

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. Apparently, the new self-destructing emails feature which will allow the users to put a timestamp to their mails after which the email won't be available anymore has been termed as the "Confidential Mode" in Gmail. Users will be able to select a date when the email will expire, after which the receiver will no longer be able to see the email. The publication's report notes that email services have to be compatible with multiple email providers and email clients.

While these "confidential" emails are hard to forward or copy for the sender, it's important to note that there's no word of end-to-end encryption - suggesting that Google can still read the contents of your emails and comply with law enforcement if they're required to give information from your account - so don't send anything you wouldn't be fine with the authorities seeing.

Further helping to secure email communications, senders have the option to require the recipient to verify their identity with a passcode before opening an email sent in Confidential Mode. Sending a confidential email to a non-Google address may not work, as it prompts the viewer to log into their Google account to access the private message. The message behind the link disappears after some time, but this doesn't mean that the intermediate email also disappears.

Apple has been ordered to pay $500 million in iMessage patent suit
Reports claim that the legal battle between Apple includes many legal suits and a myriad number of appeals. The legal battle has been protracted, and it involves multiple lawsuits and a dizzying number of appeals.

The ruling came about after a case brought against Google by Spaniard Mario Costeja Gonzalez, who wanted two newspaper articles dating back to 1998 to be deleted from the search results page.

Besides, we now find out a new surprise feature integrated by Google.

End-to-end encryption is also not mentioned by Google anywhere. Rather than using text links, Gmail will use clickable icons for a cleaner and more concise appearance. However, the leaker was able to seize a screenshot of the email content.
