Gmail brings “Undo Send” to Android

The Undo feature which allows users a brief window in which to cancel a possibly embarrassing email has arrived on mobile.

The power of ‘oops’

It has taken about four months for Undo to make its way from desktop to mobile but the inevitable has happened with the latest Android 8.2 update.

Very much like its predecessor, the feature presents a short progress bar pop-up at the bottom of the screen with the word “Undo” labeled across.

Seven seconds, that’s your window to go from regret to relief. If you do pull the emergency chute, Gmail will bring you back to the body of the email like nothing happened.

The specifics

So far users are embracing Undo-on-the-go, but there's a catch. It seems Undo only works with Gmail related addresses.

Sorry, Jeff@CompuSystems.org, I should have never have said those things and it really does look like natural hair, honest.

How the Undo feature may work with other non-Gmail accounts is hard to say, which may sway some Outlook users to make the switch but Microsoft will likely have their own version. Flattery at its finest.

What do you think about the new undo feature? Have you ever sent a bundle-filled mistake of an email? We want to know in our comments section just below.
