Google introduces an “undo Send” Gmail feature, to save your life from sending any embarrassing mail
Most of the times, you want to take back the mails you just send to anyone, may be because you want to edit it or you feel later that it is not suitable to send this one to that person. Google now makes it possible to undo the send mail.
The “Undo Send” tool will apply to all Gmail web accounts and the Inbox by Gmail app.
To enable the “Undo Send” facility, follow the following steps:
- Click the gear in the top right of your gmail webpage
- Select Settings.
- Scroll down to “Undo Send” and check Enable Undo Send.
4.Set the Send cancellation period (the amount of time you have to decide if you want to unsend an email).Users can choose to have a 5, 10, 20 or 30 seconds cancellation window.
5. Click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.
After an email is sent, a message appears at the top of your inbox that gives you the option to “Undo”.
If you undo the message within the set time frame For example, as I set 10 seconds as shown above, the message wont send in that time and you can freely edit it or delete it.
The “Undo Send” tool was originally made available after being launched as an experiment in Gmail Labs. It took Google six years to add an ‘Undo Send’ feature to Gmail.
