Gmail Undo ( Message recall ) feature is now available but time bound
If ever noticed, There is a very good feature in Outlook whenever you send any email by mistake ” recall ” or ” recall and replace with new message ” ” recall if not read “.
Now , The same kind of feature is available for Gmail users but little tricky :
- In the past, The feature was only available in Gmail Labs and Inbox app
- Now available in Settings menu of the desktop version of Gmail
- Enabling this feature can add a delay of 30 seconds for sending message
- Clicking ‘Undo’ within the set time prevents the message being delivered
This is a useful tool for general users, who send the messages by mistake. But, this feature is not yet complete as 30 seconds delay is a very very short period. Time span availability is 5, 10, 20 and 30 seconds.
Nevertheless, some thing is better than nothing.
What you feel, is 30 secs too short for message recall ?
