Sometimes in a hurry to send out emails, we accidentally leave out certain details. Or sometimes in a rush we forget to add people to emails, or we send emails to the wrong person, which can sometimes be embarrassing and disastrous. However on desktop, especially if you use Gmail, you can unsend them.

The good news is that if you use Gmail on your Android phone as well, you’ll be pleased to learn that Gmail for Android is now getting the same undo sent email feature as well. The version for Android works pretty much the same way as the desktop version, where upon sending an email, users will have a few seconds in which they can select “undo”, in which the email will then be recalled.

Despite the fact that the feature was available on Gmail for the desktop for a while now, it is actually surprising that it took Google this long to bring it onto its mobile app, but better late than never, we suppose. This will require users to update their app to version 8.7, but according to Android Police’s testing, it seems that it appears only every now and then, which means it is not as reliable yet, so maybe try not to rely on it too much for now until Google gets a handle of things, although your mileage may vary.

No word on when the iOS version of Gmail will get that feature, but given that the iOS and Android versions of Gmail tend to share the same features, we suppose it is only a matter of time.
