Google loses 'right to be forgotten' case in the UK

Google loses 'right to be forgotten' case in the UK

Now, TechCrunch has reported on a new feature in the new Gmail: the ability to send confidential emails that expire.

The report said some people who pay for Google's suite of services, called GSuite, received messages asking if they wanted to participate in a program to preview upcoming changes - including a Gmail redesign. Google is planning to introduce some big changes to the way users use Gmail. Now there is news Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL) has been working on a new version of Gmail for the web. In addition, there will be the features like "Smart Replies" with Gmail.com that delivers mechanical replies (powered by machine-learning concept) to the email accounts, which can be delivered with one click. According to new reports by TechCrunch, the email service will receive an improved design and look, which seem to be aimed at achieving a better sense of minimalism. However, the leaker was able to seize a screenshot of the email content. For now, there's no clarity on when the new Gmail will roll out for public use.

The tech giant said to be revamping Tasks, which is likely to encourage people to stay in their inbox for most of their working day, getting everything done via a single webpage. Screenshots shared with The Verge show a "Confidential Mode" which will control things like email expiry and limit what recipients of messages can do with them.

Still, in the wake of data privacy scandals like Facebook's recent Cambridge Analytica incident, it's nice to see companies like Google offering their users extra privacy features. An exact launch date for the feature and whether it will be available for non-Gmail users is unclear at this point. This is because Google is now asking users to confirm their Google account to view the confidential email.

The men took Google to court when the company refused to remove search results about their convictions, including links to news articles that the businessmen claimed were no longer relevant.

Offline support, which Google said it will make available by June 2018, will let you store your emails on your computer so you can access them offline. In the past, Google has said user privacy is worth just $25 and that Gmail users don't have legitimate privacy concerns.
