Google is set to overhaul the design of Gmail in next couple of weeks and now details of a few new features, including self destructing emails, have leaked online. The changes are expected to be effective in the coming weeks.

It is similarly unclear how this feature interoperates with users of non-Google services. There will also be a snooze feature which lets you snooze conversations and allows you to temporarily delete the emails from your inbox for a selected time limit.

In a statement to The Verge, Google said: "We're working on some major updates to Gmail (they're still in draft phase)".

"You'll soon be able to send expiring emails". In the compose video of Gmail, there is a small icon named "Confidential Mode" which States that the email recipient won't be able to forward email content, copy and paste download or print the email.

This should allow users to place more trust in email, and send confidential information they might have previously avoided sending via Gmail. Not to mention if users OR senders are utilising POP3/IMAP/SMTP to access their inbox.
