Default Google is about to launch a Gmail web redesign

This story is from the TechCrunch site:

Google is about to launch a Gmail web redesign | TechCrunch
Quote:
Google sent an email to G Suite customers to tell them that the company has been working on a brand new version of Gmail for the web. In addition to a fresh design, the company also listed some of the new features.

Update: A Google spokesperson has provided the following statement (emphasis included): “We’re working on some major updates to Gmail (they’re still in draft phase). We need a bit more time to compose ourselves, so can’t share anything yet—archive this for now, and we’ll let you know when it’s time to hit send.”
Not imminent apparently.

A bit more info from 'The Next Web' site:

This is what the new Gmail will look like
Quote:
Yesterday, Google confirmed a major redesign for Gmail was on the way. We’d seen drafts of a redesign dating back nearly a year ago and heard some descriptions of the new look, but after yesterday’s news, several sources shared images of the new design itself – including some new features.

Other than the addition of snoozing and smart replies – which we already knew were coming – the key feature of the new design is a modular sidebar that allows it to integrate with other Google apps.
I think it may still need some work!

A related freport from ZDNet:

Gmail is getting a redesign that includes a 'Confidential Mode' | ZDNet
Quote:
Double down on privacy: In the coming weeks, Google will roll out an early access program for a redesigned Gmail version, a memo says.

The new Gmail will also include a "Confidential Mode" that stops email recipients from forwarding certain emails, screenshots show. It also restricts the ability to copy, download, or print them.

Something else from Google:

Google to add extra Gmail security… by building a walled garden • The Register
Quote:
Wants to make money and ignore end-to-end encryption

Google is planning to add several new security features to its ubiquitous email service, Gmail, but they will come with a cost – literally and figuratively.

Among the new features reportedly under consideration are self-deleting emails and a new "confidentiality mode" that would prevent emails from being printed or forwarded.

While those would seem to be useful features, the question of course is: how would it actually work? And the answer of course is: by pulling Gmail into a walled garden, away from open email protocols and into a special Google system where the Chocolate Factory controls everything.

An article today from Sophos' Naked Security:

Gmail’s new ‘Confidential Mode’ won’t be completely private – Naked Security
Quote:
Have you ever wished it were possible to delete an email from a recipient’s inbox days, weeks or months after it was sent?

If so and you’re a Gmail or G Suite user, it looks as if Google might be about to enable this kind of ‘self-destructing’ email feature on its platform.
