Gmail Now Officially Supports ‘Undo Send’ Feature.

The convenience of instant, permanent communication via e-mail is a technological marvel but one which has caused an abundance of embarrassing moments. Whether you’ve accidentally sent your spouse’s sister a romantic e-mail or insulted business contacts in a drunken rage, it’s difficult to forget each moment of shame. Thankfully, these cringeworthy escapades can become a thing of the past providing your able to click ‘Undo Send’ within 10 seconds. This time period can also be extended to 30 seconds which helps you to deliberate about the message content. However, this doesn’t help users who are blind drunk at the time and require at least a 24 hour to 5 month period to remember even sending the e-mail.

By default, the ‘Undo Send’ command is disabled unless you are involved in the Google Labs programme. To enable this feature, simply navigate to the cog just below your Google account picture and click settings. Ensure the general tab is active and manually check the ‘Undo Send’ function.

I do find it rather perplexing that it has taken over 6 years for this vital Gmail component to be official supported and presume most power users are already familiar with it using Google Labs. The question remains if the average user will be aware of the added functionality and how often it’s utilized.

Let us know your most embarrassing e-mail blunders and we promise not to judge.
