No doubt Gmail is one of the most popular email services used by people across the globe. After a very long duration Google’s mail service is going under some major refurbishment which is being rolled out now to the users. The search giant has ensured that the update is getting released and this will bring a host of some very new features to the service. The latest features get in connection with the confidentiality, security and the better usability among many other things.
The rollout has actually started now and this will be phased for next few months. The continuous Gmail users can try their hand at some of the exclusive and new features under the similar settings menu where you can see an option “try new Gmail”. However you need to keep this in mind that this too will be phased so there is no need to panic in case you do not find it there. So here I go with the latest 10 features that Gmail may get for a better and improved user experience.
Integrated Rights Management – Block recipients from downloading, forwarding and printing your email.
This is more meaningful for the business users because it gives its users a perfect opportunity to block the copying, forwarding, downloading and even the printing of some specific messages.
Two-Factor Authentication is mailed
When it comes to the confidential mode, Gmail is also providing the two factor authentication protection. The recipient of the mail in confidential mode will need to enter the SMS pass code in order to read the messages efficiently.
Confidential Mode –Set the Expiry Dates for your mails
With this feature, the users get a perfect chance to set expiration to the specific mail or they can also revoke it. According to this confidential mode feature the content of the mail cannot be sent instead a link to the content is sent which is displayed as a regular email in a Gmail client.

Nudging Feature - Get Reminders for the mails you have missed
The nudges will bring up the emails that are older than two days to the top of the inbox. It won’t be the random log of the old mails because Google is making use of the machine learning in order to recognize which mails are elementary. In case an email has the direct question and has not been replied to, that email will also be flagged up as a boon of this feature.

The new side panel will now be available on the right side of the screen and this will list the most-used Google apps. This may include the Calendar and tasks among others. The key idea behind this is as per Google, user do not have to leave Gmail to have access other various apps.
