Christmas must have come early, because Google just announced what they're calling “the biggest overhaul of the app in nearly four years,” which includes an important change for iPhone users: You can now undo send on emails.
Everyone knows the feeling: You realize you replied to all instead of forwarding a rant right after tapping send. Or you write a private note to your significant other, only to realize you sent it to a coworker with the same first name.
Here's to hoping this update rids us all of awkward email situations.
The new feature will be available to those who download the 10.1.1 iOS update. This function has been available on the desktop version and on the Android app since 2015, but this is the first time it's been introduced on the iOS app for Gmail.
In addition to the “undo send” feature, the app has also introduced faster searching within the app with spelling suggestions and the ability to delete or archive messages with a simple swipe. Google calendar has also made some updates for both iOS and Android users, including a new month and week landscape view, a spotlight search function, and alternate calendars (Lunar, Islamic, Hindu, to name a few).
