Five Seconds Of Freedom

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.

Gmail Undo SendThe “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.

  1. I tried that feature out the other day…it took me more than 5 seconds to find the undo button lol! Yeah, those 5 seconds go REALLY quickly, so if you’re going to have remorse over sending an email, you better have it immediately.

  2. Yeah, I wish they gave you a little more than 5 seconds but all well, its still a nice feature.
