Google’s Gmail has just rolled out with another feature- five seconds of freedom.
There is a new “Undo Send” button available that enables users to retract a message that they chose to send to someone. Google says that the reasoning behind this feature is to allow users to correct emails that were sent to the wrong person or were missing information.
The “Undo Send” feature does not actually make a delivered message disapear- it simply holds on to your message for five seconds after you press the send button.
The idea behind this feature could come in handy for those who want to gripe at their boss, then after a second thought, realize that it may not be such a good idea. Unfortunately, five seconds does not allow you a ton of time to make that decision.
