One downside to the new Gmail design and the self-destructing emails is that it's now unclear whether the feature will work on clients other than Google. 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. It says that the recipient won't be able to forward email content, copy and paste, download or print the email.

However, in all likelihood there will be no protection against screenshots of the email, even if it has been set to self-destruct after a set timeframe, which can be any amount of days, weeks, months or years.

In a statement, Google did not confirm specific changes but did acknowledge that it's working on a change to its email service.

The revamp looks like it'll feature a new, clean design, smart replies, the ability to snooze emails and a new pane for the Calendar and Keep apps. Also, the new feature will be smoothly embedded in the compose screen of the Gmail website which will make it easier for the users to switch to the "Confidential Mode". Now again according to some sources the Gmail is testing Confidential emails which will expire automatically.

The yet-to-be introduced feature works quite much like expiring emails in "ProtonMail" in which the email becomes unreadable after some time. This allows users to temporarily hide an email so that they can open it at a later time.

The password-protecting of email is something that will be welcomed by many users, and it is going to be implemented through the use of a code sent out via SMS. That means they'll disappear from your outbox, and from the recipient's inbox.

It is being speculated that Google is not deleting any emails, instead, it is simply destroying the go-between links so that the content can't be read. It's also unclear if the integration is going to work better in the future when everybody is using the new Gmail.
