This latest Gmail upgrade comes as Google is expected to announce more big news in the coming weeks.

The new Gmail design also features a new sidebar, with the option of using Google's calendar, Keep note-taking app, or tasks side-by-side with your email messages.

Moreover, Gmail will also allow you to set a deadline for certain emails, which, when reached, will trigger the automatic complete deletion of the chosen emails. In addition, users will be able to set an expiration date on sent email.

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

However there is a catch, a recipient can still screenshot the mail and can use it as per his/her convenience. "This capability is unique and can help you find interesting books that a keyword search might not surface", says Google, explaining why the application is useful.

Called Maven, the programme applies AI and machine learning to the job of classifying objects in surveillance footage, but Google responded to the employee petition saying that the technology was intended to save lives and save people from having to do highly tedious work.

TechCrunch, who received the information from a tipster with early access, points out this could be a ploy to get more Gmail users' phone numbers.

The National Radio Research Agency approved the Google Home and the Google Home Mini AI speakers earlier this month, according to the sources.

The Google development team trained its neural network model in order to recognize individual people's voices. Encrypted messaging app Signal also gives users a less-intense version that erases messages after the recipient has read them. Google has not mentioned end-to-end encryption anywhere, which means the company is most likely to stick with non-encrypted emails.

The search giant's I/O conference takes place from May 8th to 10th at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California.
