Did you hit send too early or catch a typo in your email a split-second too late? With Gmail’s “undo” feature you can get your message back.
If you decide you don’t want to send an email, you have a short time after to cancel it. Right after you send a message, you can retract it:
- In the bottom left, you’ll see “Message sent” and the option to “Undo” or “View message”.
- Click Undo.
Choose an amount of time to recall a message
- On your computer, go to Gmail.
- In the top right, click Settings Settings.
- Next to “Undo Send,”select a Send cancellation period of 5, 10, 20, or 30 seconds.
