Google is expected to implement new design changes within Gmail for all users within the next couple weeks.

This new feature is already available for people who use the Gmail app on their phones.

The new update for the web version of Gmail, along with several new features including smart reply from the web client, the ability to snooze emails and offline support.

While Google is set to update the look of Gmail, few details of exactly what the tech giant has in store for its ever popular email service remains unclear.

TechCrunch first confirmed the feature, including screenshots that reveal how it will work. 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 new look also enables Gmail users to place calendar appointments side-by-side with messages, which should help avoid doubling-booking, or missed events.

Gmail is testing a new "confidential mode" that allows users to set an expiration date for their correspondence, and attempts to prohibit users from forwarding, downloading, or copying an email.

This link will expire after a set period of time, meaning that the email has effectively disappeared.

Smart Reply - Smart Reply suggests three responses you might send based on the content of an email you received.

There's now no word on a final release date for the new Gmail, however, a message to early access testers hints at a launch date in the coming weeks.

This should allow users to place more trust in email, and send confidential information they might have previously avoided sending via Gmail. Snooze can be a godsend if you get a lot of emails, receive one when you don't have time to answer, and forget about it when the incoming flood pushes it off your screen.

Following the blockbuster update, Gmail users will also be able to require recipients enter a passcode (generated via SMS) to open their emails. Finally, an email can be locked behind a two-factor authentication process to ensure that only the intended recipient can read it. Due to a notice delivered prematurely to G Suite users, Google itself tipped the existence of the redesigned Gmail interface. There's also a "compact view" that is similar to Gmail's current layout for users who don't want to change.
