24 Jun Learn How to Use the New Undo Send Feature for Gmail
Finally, the second chance you’ve been waiting for!
We’ve all been there. We’ve sent an email without attaching an important document. We’ve sent a private email to the wrong person. We’ve noticed a spelling error in the subject line- after we’ve hit send!
Whatever the reason, we’ve all wished for an undo send button at some point or another. Well, Google has granted our wish! Google has officially added ‘Undo Send’ as a formal setting in Gmail. This feature is disabled by default, but Autograph Media Group will show you how to add this useful ‘un-send’ feature to your account now!
1. First, go to your Gmail settings.
Click on the gear icon in the top right and then click settings in the dropdown menu.
2. Make sure you’re in the “General” tab and then scroll down to the “Undo Send” section.
Select how long you want the delay to be. If you select 10 seconds, Gmail will hold the email in your inbox for 10 seconds before sending.
3. Don’t forget to scroll down to the bottom and “save your changes.”
Or else this new feature will not work!
Now, after you send an email, you’ll see an Undo button pop-up.
Depending on your selection, you will now have up to 30 seconds to unsend your email if you’ve made a mistake or have a change of heart about an email! For more quick tips, check Autograph Media Group’s blog often. For help with social media or web design, give us a call at 850-702-5599.
