Gmail Now Integrates Useful ‘Block’ Button




/ 4 years ago

Gmail has finally implemented a long-overdue feature which allows you to block “disruptive” senders and automatically divert their message into a spam folder. The tool was launched yesterday for Web users and should arrive on Android devices a few days later. Google also announced an ‘unsubscribe’ button to opt out of mailing lists without having to navigate to the sender’s website. A spokesperson for Google said in a blog post:

“Sometimes you get mail from someone who’s really disruptive. Hopefully it doesn’t happen often—but when it does, you should be able to say, Never see messages from this person again.”

“That’s why you can now block specific email addresses in Gmail—starting today on the web, and over the next week on Android. Future mail will go to the spam folder (and you can always unblock in Settings).”

To block any sender, all you have to do is click the ‘More’ drop-down menu and select ‘Block’ or ‘Unsubscribe’. This makes it remarkably simple to enable either of these functions but difficult enough so you can’t click it by accident. With the huge amount of spam e-mails, phishing scams, and abuse messages, this should have been implemented a long time ago. Thankfully, this should allow you to clean up your inbox and live a less stressful working environment.
