Users can have a message expire after a set amount of time, to prevent it from resurfacing years later. If you want to switch back later down the road, you can go to the same place and select "Go back to classic Gmail", he added, describing how to access the updated Gmail version. Gmail will also recommend when to unsubscribe to mailing lists based on cues like how many emails you get from a sender compared to how many of them you actually read. Users can now enable a "confidential" option when sending an email and can time-limit its access to recipients.

If you've followed along with the leaks in recent weeks, none of the new features will surprise you.

Tasks is easy to access from Gmail: you simply tap the icon on the right rail and it pops out on the right side of your inbox.

You can think of the new confidential mode as Snapchat's expiring messages but in email form.

Speaking of security, the new Gmail will bring you new warnings to highlight the potentially malicious emails coming through. "It's familiar, it's Gmail, 'They didn't change too much.'As [users] discover features one by one, the satisfaction starts to increase".

Mobile users will get high-priority notifications that allow you to focus on important emails, and Gmail will also suggest that you unsubscribe from newsletters that you don't care about.

Reminders for emails you haven't responded to. Action buttons that appear to the right of emails in your inbox can be used to archive message, mark them as read, delete or snooze them.

We'll have to check out the functionality for ourselves to see how it works, but we're looking forward to one day being able to respond to a bunch of emails while offline on a flight, only to see them satisfyingly zoom away once you're connected to the internet again. And perhaps most interestingly, Google is ever so slightly implementing the beginning of an algorithmic inbox, with the new nudges feature.

The new Gmail is available today for all personal Gmail users and G Suite early adopter program (EAP) customers, but all are meant to boost team productivity, according to David Thacker, VP Product Management for G Suite. Those seem like the priorities of the business users, and there is a distinct sense among the series of changes that Google has made, which everyone is going to be treated a lot more like business customers of Google.
