Google Adds Undo Send Option to Gmail

By CIOReview | Thursday, June 25, 2015

FREMONT, CA:  Emails have become an integral part of communication and as users we often get tangled in situations where the mail communication could also call for troublesome consequences. Google seems to have understood this concept in the perfect sense and therefore announces the addition of an advanced and interesting feature in its Gmail called the Undo send to help users.

The Undo send feature helps users to delay or retract sending an email from 05 to 30 seconds so that the user gets time to review the actions in case of an error. The new feature which has been added to Gmail is extremely beneficial in such conditions.

Now an official setting in Gmail can be enabled in the General tab of Gmail Settings. Undo send was released with Google's new version of Inbox though it has been in the beta version since 2009 as part of Google Labs, reports Jessica Guynn for USA Today.

Presently the enhancement is available only as a Web feature and Gmail’s smart phone application users will have to wait for it.
