Gmail's lifesaving feature is finally here, and its 'Undo send'

Nothing is more frightening than sending a mail to wrong recipient by mistake. Be it a normal reply or containing an attachment, its aftermath can sometime be a deal breaker for many. Google has always understood the pain we all face while compiling and sending emails. It always has attachment reminder in case you have mentioned in your mail that it contains an attachment and have forgotten to attach it, but this time it has gone a step further. You can now undo send a mail you have sent by mistake, however you have to be quick. It only give you an option to undo send for up to 30 seconds.

Undo sending your mail

If you make a typo or regret sending a message, you can undo the action by enabling "Undo send." This setting gives you the option to take back a message you just sent.
To enable Undo Send:
  1. Click the gear in the top right .
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Scroll down to "Undo Send" and click Enable.
  4. Set the cancellation period (the amount of time you have to decide if you want to unsend an email).
  5. Click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.If you had Undo Send turned on in Gmail Labs, your Undo Send setting will be on by default.
Note: To give you time to undo, Gmail delays sending the message for a few seconds. So if you don't select "Undo" within the time limit, your message will be sent. "Undo send" may not work if you experience connection issues.
