Gmail officially adds ‘Undo Send’ feature — here’s how to turn it on
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.
Google made this announcement on Monday, but it could take up to two weeks for the feature to roll out to all accounts.
To enable Undo Send:
Click the gear in the top right .
Scroll down to “Undo Send” and click Enable.
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.
