Emails have become a daily part of our life since their early invention. Text messages are quicker and informal but nothing comes close to the communication that we do via emails.
If you are a frequent Gmail user, sending emails by the dozens then you may find yourself in a situation when you send an email to the wrong email ID, sent emails while forgetting to attach a file, sent a mail with typos or even sent out angry emails that you wish to Unsend.
Luckily, Gmail allows you a 30 second time window to Unsend an email via Gmail. However, this should be enabled before any such email has been sent. So what that means is it is best if you enable it today and now before you find yourself in need to using the Unsend feature somewhere in the future.
In order to Unsend a message you will need to enable Undo Send option. This is very easy and can be easily done through your Gmail inbox.
How To Undo Send or Unsend An Email in GMAIL
On the top right corner in your inbox is a wheel-gear symbol that stands for “settings”.
When you click the Settings icon you will find yourself looking at Setting options as shown in the image below:
The fourth option on the left in this Settings page is the “Undo Send”. It will allow you to select a time option of 5, 10, 20, or 30 seconds. Selecting 30 seconds is your safest bet as it will give you 30 seconds to Unsend a message after having clicked Send.
When actually using the “Undo Send” option after having sent an email, you must immediately select “Undo Send” and not another option “View message” which appears next to “Undo Send”.
We recommend trying your best to avoid having the need of using the Undo Send feature by proofreading and checking your emails for grammar and spelling mistakes by installing Grammarly for Chrome extension or any other browser that you may be using.
