Also security warnings for phishing emails.  Locked emails can be set to disappear from 1 day to 5 years.

The tools work even with emails sent to non-Gmail accounts.

Having trouble imagining how that works.

This on the other hand...

Other productivity features include more suggestions to unsubscribe from email lists

Say goodbye to lots of subscribers unless you make your emails worthwhile

Confidential Mode emails will open in a special window that doesn't allow the recipient to forward, copy or print the message (though you can still grab a screenshot). There's an option to revoke an email at any time. The tools work even with emails sent to non-Gmail accounts.

So, its going to open up an outside link (no doubt encrypted) with none of the information actually being embedded in the actual email.
