Gmail’s new “undo send”

Feature saves us from ourselves


 

Most people have sent an email or two they later regretted—either to a boss, a friend or an ex. Gmail is now offering a safeguard: its new “Undo” feature puts a five-second hold on all outgoing mail. Although the new feature can’t withdraw mail that’s already gone out, the  hold does provide a window to withdraw messages after hitting the “Send” button, bringing users back to the “Compose” screen, Wired reports. (Doing nothing means the email will send after five seconds.) Gmail users can turn on the new feature by hitting “Settings,” and then the “Labs” tab.

Gmail’s new “undo send”

  1. Mail Goggles is still my favourite…

  2. The idea is in the right direction but in my opinion needs to have a 10 minute delay. Or better yet, a function to suck it right out of the recipients inbox the next morning.

  3. Great!!

  4. This feature is a godsend – So good! Thanks!
