All Gmail users can now 'undo send'

All Gmail users can now 'undo send'
Published: 24 June 2015 (2934 Views)
San Francisco - Google is making it easier to avoid getting into trouble with a misdirected or inappropriate email.

An option to cancel the delivery of an email within 30 seconds of hitting the send button is now a standard safeguard in Google's Gmail as part of a settings change made this week.

The "undo send" feature had previously been available for several years in Google's experimental labs, requiring Gmail users to take extra steps to get it.

Gmail account holders will now be able to activate the protection in Gmail's settings by activating the undo send option.

The tool delays the delivery of emails from five to 30 seconds after the send button is pressed to give users a fleeting chance to retrieve an email mistakenly sent to the wrong person or an ill-conceived communiqué.
