Gmail has released a new feature. This time, users are able to quickly undo emails they already sent on Gmail. Here is all you need to know about the new feature and how to enable it.

Over the past few years, Gmail has emerged as one of the best email messaging service on the Internet.

Although yahoo mail is so much in existence and most people still use yahoo, Gmail tend to have won the heart of more email messaging users.

Yet again, another feature has been added to the Gmail messaging service which could really save you from some drastic mistake.

The Undo Send feature enables you to undo a sent message before it is finally sent.

When the feature is enabled, you have a timer set before the message is finally sent. Within the set time frame, you can undo the sent message which would return it to draft or edit screen.
