Gmail

The new version of Gmail is quite a delight to use (yes! you can try out the new Gmail in Pakistan). If you have opted to try out the new Gmail, then you will receive two new amazing features Smart Compose and Confidential Mode.

Both Smart Compose and Confidential Mode has already made its way into the Google’s email service, we have checked. Here’show you can use them

Confidential Mode

As the name suggests, this mode will help you keep the sent data private and confidential. Ordinarily, when you send someone an email, it will stay in their inbox unless they choose to get rid of it. This can be a problem especially if you have sent someone an important piece of information that you’d rather not stay in their inbox as it can be a subjected to any cyber attack.

Using Confidential Mode

With the new confidential mode in Gmail, the receiver instead of getting a message will receive the link which will expire after the set time period which can be between one day and five years. If you want some extra security, the recipient will also be required to enter a randomly generated passcode sent via SMS.

Smart Compose

Now you won’t need to type the complete sentences in your email. Smart Compose just like predictive texting will analyze the context of the message and what you have typed to suggest words that you might type next using machine learning.
