Google Makes “Undo Send” Official

I have to admit: I had no idea Gmail had an “Undo Send” option–did you? I guess I’m not alone.

The feature allowing users to “unsend” an email actually was first introduced in March 2009. At that point, it was just an experiment and stayed in the Labs section, where Google tests out new features.

Now it’s official. The feature has been added to your main settings in Gmail:

  • Go to the “Settings” in your email, in the drop-down menu below your profile picture.
  • Scroll down to “Undo Send.”
  • Click “Enable Undo Send.”
  • You can choose a cancellation period for the feature of five, 10, 20 or 30 seconds.

So the next time you accidentally send the email to your boss that was supposed to go to your friends–you have a few moments to correct your misstep.
