This is the new Gmail design

However, there is one big concern surrounding the new feature which is - although Google does not allow printing, copying, or pasting of the email content there are no measures whatsoever to prevent the receiver from screenshotting the email.

According to leaked images, the confidential mode will work even with third-party email clients like "ProtonMail". However, the feature is still under development, as the option "Learn More" now redirects to a blank page. It seems that not only the design will change as Gmail is set to bring in a very important surprising new feature which was added by Google, and it was discovered shortly before the official release. The addition of Confidential Mode will grant users greater control over the emails they send, giving them the option of adding password protection to a message so they can not be opened by unauthorized people. The new feature will allow users to set the expiration date. It further states that the recipient won't be able to forward, download or copy the email's contents, and attachments will be disabled. Unless protection is offered against the incredibly simple process of taking a screenshot of any supposedly confidential mail, the whole feature might well be useless, and will simply protect against inbox searches post the expiry of the email. This will be especially useful for sending confidential emails or emails that you feel should be read and deleted for privacy purposes.

You'll be able to snooze emails so that they reappear in your inbox hours or days later. Google, if rumors are right, working on enhanced confidential mode, which will allow the recording of the email as well. Google has not mentioned end-to-end encryption anywhere, which means the company is most likely to stick with non-encrypted emails.
