Google to launch new Gmail design in the coming weeks

  Google to launch new Gmail design in the coming weeks Google is planning to launch a new design for its Gmail web interface soon. In an email to G Suite administrators, obtained by The Verge, the company says the new design will include “several new features” that will also be made available to regular Gmail accounts. Google promises a “fresh, clean look for Gmail on the web,” with features like Smart Reply, the ability to snooze emails, and offline support.

Gmail is getting a new look—and some new features—when the next update rolls out in a few weeks. Google confirmed the update to The Verge on Wednesday.

A leaked e-mail about the update promises a “fresh, clean look” for Gmail with some new features, including a predictive “smart reply” feature for Gmail’s web version. This “Smart Reply” feature is already available for people who use the Gmail app on their phones.

Part of that “fresh, clean look” will likely include new fonts. As Quartz notes, the fonts Google appears to have chosen for its interface and messages will be more mobile-friendly. The fonts, called Product Sans and Roboto, are Google’s own. Product Sans letters look like the “g” used in Google’s current logo; Roboto will make some noticeable changes to characters like “Q,” “?” and “$.” The letters will also be thinner.

Google's phone app will boot spam calls to voicemail automatically

  Google's phone app will boot spam calls to voicemail automatically Google is taking spam calls seriously. An upcoming update to the default Phone app on Android One, Nexus and Pixel devices will send potential spam calls directly to voicemail, as spotted by 9to5 Google. The feature works like this: A potential spam call comes in, and automatically goes to voicemail. You won't receive a notification for the missed call, and your phone won't ring. However, calls will still show up in your call history and voicemail. Presumably, Google is using AI to filter these calls, much in the way it does spam messages in Gmail.

Virtual Reality. Business. Design . All Tech. You can even set a self - destructing timer that automatically makes an email inaccessible an hour, a day, or a week later. (If they do have Dmail installed, then the message is just shown within Gmail .)

For those of us who can’t deal with the onslaught of messages in our inbox but really need to remember to reply to a certain message, Google should be offering some help in the form of a snooze button. This feature is already available for people who use the Inbox by Gmail app or Boomerang, a third-party Gmail tool.

Gmail may also introduce “self-destructing e-mails,” which become inaccessible after a set amount of time, TechCrunch reported Friday based on leaked screenshots. This “confidential mode” should prevent people from forwarding, printing or downloading the e-mail and may also allow senders to require recipients to verify their identity with a personal identification number.

TechCrunch notes e-mail encryption service ProtonMail already has this feature. Encrypted messaging app Signal also gives users a less-intense version that erases messages after the recipient has read them.

The Verge’s Tom Warren noted on Wednesday that Google will likely announce the changes on May 8 at Google I/O 2018.

Now Cortana for Android beta can read your texts out loud .
Cortana for Android has just made it easier to use your phone hands-free -- so long as you're a beta tester for the voice assistant on the platform, that is. Microsoft has given Cortana's beta version the power to read text messages aloud, less than a month after the stable version of the app got the ability to text messages using your voice. Combined, the two features make it possible to communicate back and forth even while you're driving, cooking or doing any other task that requires the use of both hands.
