Google Added A Surprising New Feature In Gmail - The Confidential Mode

The device doubles as a speaker that can play music throughout the home, and you can issue voice commands to control your smart home appliances, set reminders, answer questions and more. It's also not a stretch to imagine other apps will be able to integrate with this section, and TechCrunch reports that's indeed the case.

Google Assistant has been one of the most used and popular AI in the smartphone industry.

Google is providing three new layouts to choose from, including a default view that highlights attachments like documents and photos, a comfortable view that doesn't highlight attachments, and a compact view that increases the amount of messages you can see on a single page. One of the reasons could be the less availability of the audiences. Gmail's expiring email will essentially become unreadable after some time.

What is also unclear at this point is whether the feature will work with other email accounts or only for emails sent to other Gmail users. This "confidential mode" should prevent people from forwarding, printing or downloading the e-mail and may also allow senders to require recipients to verify their identity with a personal identification number.

Since then, Google has received requests to delist over 2.4 million links. Google is currently testing the new template inside the company, as well as with some trusted partners. But Google is among the world leaders in the field of AI. That means there will still be a record of users sending and receiving self-destructing emails, but not necessarily any info on what was contained in the message. Better yet, you can set scenes and schedules that will turn on the connected devices at the time of your choosing.

End-to-end encryption is also not mentioned by Google anywhere.

So, if you send or receive messages to your Gmail inbox in "confidential mode", they will self-destruct (i.e. you can't copy, download or print them) upon the scheduled expiration date.

When you're planning out your smart home and want to find an easy (and cheap) place to start, light bulbs are your best option.
