Few days back, Google made its experimental feature “Undo Send” official. I already posted an article covering Gmail’s Undo Send feature. At that time, this feature was available via Gmail labs. Now, the feature is available for all users. If you were not already using using this feature, you can enable this from the settings of your Gmail account. If you still do not know about this, it is a Gmail feature which lets you stop a sent mail from being sent to the receiver. Yes, if you accidently sent an email to someone, you can stop that email within a specified amount of time.
How to enable Undo Send in Gmail
If you want to use this, you need to enable this feature from the settings of your Gmail account. Just click on the gear icon at the top right side below your profile pic. Select “settings” here.
In settings, find “Undo Send” in the general tab. Select the checkbox to enable this feature and select the delay time. It offers delay time options 5, 10, 20, and 30 seconds. I recommend you yo use 30 seconds to have enough time to think and undo a mail.
Once you have made changes, scroll down to the bottom and save settings.
Next time you send an email, you will see a notification at the top soon after clicking on send button. If you want to unto mail send, click on Undo link. It is worth to mention that undo link will disappear if you refresh the page or go to another page in Gmail.
How does this feature work?
