Google owned email service Gmail introduced a feature to unsend emails back in 2009. The feature lets users to cancel the email after pressing the send button. It was named as ‘Undo Send’ and kept in Gmail labs as an experimental feature. After a long period of time, the option gets a permanent spot.
Google has brought ‘Undo Send’ inside the main Gmail feature list. It’s resided under the General tab inside Gmail settings.
To turn on the feature, click the gear icon found on the upper right corner of your Gmail interface and go to Settings. To enable the feature, check ‘Enable Undo Send’ and set the safety timer. That’s it.
Gmail’s undo send works by simply delaying the delivery of your sent email. It actually sends the mail after the predetermined ‘Undo Send’ safety period.
