Gmail's redesign adds some welcome calendar integration

In any case, Gmail users should be pleased to finally see a refresh of the web app. Its last few tweaks have mostly centered around security and general ease of use-nothing that would dramatically change the look and feel of the site.

Today, we're learning that Google is looking to add a new feature to Gmail: self-destructing emails.

Google's upcoming Gmail redesign could come with security features that ensure only the right person can view an e-mail-and only for a specific period of time. The compact view is the most similar to the existing Gmail design, allowing existing users to keep a similar layout. You can just tap this calendar panel, check the date, and reply back to the email. We'd seen drafts of a redesign dating back almost a year ago and heard some descriptions of the new look, but after yesterday's news, several sources shared images of the new design itself - including some new features. This would be neat if sensitive information is being sent via the email.

Google has announced the launch of Google Go, a brand new app which will allows users to search and browse the web, while incurring less data charges.

Google seems to be gearing up to bring a variety of features to Gmail.

"Weak data connectivity, high data costs and low RAM or storage space often makes it hard for people to get the most out of the internet; Google Go is built to handle these challenges, " she said. This improved design includes the addition of features that are already available in the Gmail Inbox app, such as "snooze" (which lets you temporarily hold off certain emails until you're ready to read them) and "smart reply" (which prompts you to answer messages quickly), according to The Verge.

Christina Bonnington is a freelance contributor for the Daily Dot covering consumer gadgets, apps, and the trends shaping the technology industry. The company says the update will feature a "fresh, clean look" and give users access to several new features, like Smart Reply, the ability to snooze emails, and offline support.

The present Gmail for Web design is among the earliest designs of Google.
