Google is evolving with their infamous Gmail, its email software, in form and content, with new options to control the transfer, copying, downloading or printing of a message.
At a time when not a day goes by without talking about security and privacy issues regarding email software and social networks, Google is announcing that it has strengthened the security and privacy of its email software, GMail.
When sending e-mails, Gmail now includes a confidential mode that allows you to send a message with an expiry date of up to 7 days, which can be useful for sensitive documents sent. And, to go further when it comes to security, access by SMS for an e-mail is configurable via this same mode.
A dose of artificial intelligence
Google pushes the idea until having the possibility to block the transfer, the copy, the download or the printing of a message (what about the screenshot in this last case?), to avoid any unfortunate gesture of the recipient. Another improvement regarding user experience is the presence of artificial intelligence. For example, the playback pane shows a small reminder message to reply or not to a message, an exciting feature for all those who receive dozens of emails per day minimum.
In another genre, the Web version of Gmail is enhanced with Smart Reply functionality, available only in the mobile application until now. This one proposes ready-made answers to save time when it is necessary.
Concerning the interface, Gmail has undergone a certain facelift for more simplicity in its use. In the playback pane, four actions are directly accessible by simple icons without having to open the e-mail: archive, delete, mark as read and set to sleep. To activate this new version of Gmail, click on the Interface Settings button then on “Try the new version of Gmail.”
