Google's G Suite redesign draws on AI to kill email clutter

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

Email snoozing now is a common feature among the third-party email clients, and Google has done the obvious thing by directly integrating it into Gmail.

The process to get the new look and features will depend on the type of Google account you have. Google's intention is to then make the new Gmail switch on by default, but give users to the option to switch back - before finally pulling the plug on the old Gmail entirely.

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

Google is also introducing two-factor authentication for individual emails, which will require recipients to key in a passcode delivered by SMS before they can open a message. Available while composing an email, the mode provides senders with the option to prevent the recipient from forwarding, copying/ pasting, downloading, and printing the content in the email.

All of these new features will be coming out to regular Gmail users.

As predicted, Gmail has received its big makeover on the web-or at least, it's starting to receive it, with certain users of Google's business-oriented G Suite getting the first look.

Students clash with forces in Chadoora
Authorities reportedly used force to quell the protests, which then led to clashes between the students and security forces. Reports said that students from Government Higher Secondary School Ajas took to roads and blocked Srinagar-Bandipora road.

Ultimately, new Gmail is trying out some bigger ideas that challenge the traditional concept of an inbox. 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. If you didn't know about Tasks to begin with, we wouldn't blame you, as it's nearly if Google itself had completely forgotten about it and just recently made a decision to revive it. By using the Snooze feature you can put off reading the message until another time or date. Personal Gmail users can opt-in via settings and selecting "try the new Gmail".

Notifications on mobile will be offered so users can get alerts for important messages, which Google says will help people stay focused without interruption. And even though nobody actually understands what Google's plans for Hangouts really is, it's still right there in your inbox.

"With confidential mode, it's possible to protect sensitive content in your emails by creating expiration dates or revoking previously sent messages", wrote David Thacker, VP of product management. That last one is another new feature for the web version.

Confidential mode will also prevent accidental or semi-malicious leaks by disabling the ability to copy text and save pages, working on the basis that if committing a crime is even slightly more hard, people are much less likely to do it.

Gmail will "nudge" you to follow up and respond to messages with quick reminders that appear next to your email messages, which Izatt said will "help make sure nothing slips through the cracks".

Earlier this month, Google was reportedly testing some new features for Gmail and was planning a major overhaul for the service for web users.
