Gmail’s “Undo-Send” feature has saved many careers, relationships, and marriages for sure. It has been cooking in their “Labs” section for around 6 years. But now it has officially graduated and is available by default to all Gmail users.
For those who are new to this – “Undo Send” is a gmail feature which gives you a small time period (5-30 seconds) during which you can recall a sent email. So if you accidentally include your dad or boss in the email you wrote for your girlfriend, you really have a chance to take it back even after hitting the send button.
How to Enable Undo Send.
To enable Undo-Send –
- Open Gmail and click on the gear icon on top right.
- Select “Settings” and scroll down to “Undo Send”

The undo feature is available in google Inbox too. You can also use this option in android app when you define the same setting in Gmail Inbox using desktop. This option is available to all the users using default Gmail account.
