Expiring emails : Similar to ProtonMail, expiring emails can be set to auto-destruct after a set time. This is useful when sending sensitive data which needs to have very limited access. This feature is available in Confidential mode and hasn’t rolled out to many Gmail users as of now.

Nudge: Using AI, Gmail can let you know if you have missed out replying on messages. These messages will be displayed on top as a reminder.

Smart Reply : Depending on the content of received emails, Smart reply will show possible suggested replies to it which can then be used directly.

Snooze: For email messages, simply hovering on them can lead to snoozing them, marking them as read , archiving or deleting them. Snooze option is for putting off low priority emails in a to-do queue.
 
To use the Snooze option, either select the clock icon by hovering on email message or opening it and then selecting it.

Next, specify a future date and time from the available drop-down or select Pick date & time.
 
Once an email message is snoozed, it will now be available in Snoozed folder from where it can again be unsnoozed.

Adding recipients: Recipients can now be directly added from the message body by using a + which will display a list of potential recipients and will directly be added in the To field.
