Gmail's confidential mode now available to G Suite accounts as beta

It's hard to believe now, but Gmail's interface revamp is almost a year old now. Really. One of the main features of the updated email service was a "confidential mode" that let senders set expiry dates on certain emails, require verification on the recipient's end before being able to open the message, and restrict them from forwarding or printing the content. Until now, confidential mode was only available to personal Gmail users, but it's just launched in beta to G Suite customers.
