The new Gmail is here. It's The Daily Crunch.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25 2018 By Anthony Ha

The new Gmail is finally here, Instagram launches a data download tool and Twitter beats earning expectations. All that, plus a detailed rundown of every character who dies in Avengers: Infinity War, in The Daily Crunch for April 25, 2018.

1. Say hello to the new Gmail with self-destructing messages, email snoozing and more

The new features shouldn't surprise regular Daily Crunch readers, since they were revealed in leaks over the past few weeks.

Still, this is the biggest update Gmail has gotten in years. And while self-destructing emails and email snoozing might be getting most of the attention, there are other additions including a sidebar that integrates with Google Calendar and other services.

2. Grab's acquisition of Uber Southeast Asia drives into problems

I do not approve of the pun in this headline. Nevertheless, you should read Jon Russell's reporting on opposition from regulators and other parties to Grab's plans for buying up Uber's Southeast Asia business.

3. Instagram launches "Data Download" tool to let you leave

This is similar to Facebook's existing Download Your Information feature. It lets users export their photos, videos, archived Stories, profile, info, comments, and non-ephemeral messages, though it can take a few hours to days for your download to be ready.

4. Twitter beats expectations with $665M in revenue amid its turnaround hopes

Twitter has had a rough time on the public markets — but hey, at least it's still worth more than Snap.

5. Opera launches a new mobile browser

Opera Touch takes some ideas from the company's experimental Opera Neon desktop browser and packages them up for Android, with an iOS version coming soon. Opera Touch and the company's desktop browser can now easily share information with each other without the need for logins and passwords.

6. MobileCoin, a cryptocurrency from the creator of Signal, just raised $30M for mobile payments

New cryptocurrency projects are a dime a dozen, but the legitimacy of an established name (like Signal's Moxie Marlinspike) can make all the difference. The company says, "MobileCoin is designed so that a mobile messaging application like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, or Signal could integrate with a MobileCoin wallet."

7. 'Avengers: Infinity War' is an overstuffed adventure with a terrific villain

It's not Black Panther good, but it's pretty good.
