Gmail Launches ‘Undo Send’ Feature for Emails

This week Gmail has officially announced its ‘Undo Send’ feature. Due to this feature users will able to undo the send emails. We all wished for a long time that there should be an option that can prevent us from sending mails to wrong recipient, forgetting to attach media or also if mistakenly reply send to wrong person. Gmail has been working on this feature for some time by beta testing. This option adds a delay of few seconds like if you send mail to wrong recipient and also you may forget to attach some attachments, this option allows you to go back and prevent it from reaching the recipient email inbox.
