Google has updated its Gmail app to allow users to “unsend” emails which they wish they had not sent in the first place. The new feature comes along with an upgrade that Google has introduced to its app on iOS systems.
The company has upgraded both Gmail and Google Calendar for iOS. So while Google competes head to head with Apple with its own Android operating system for mobile devices, the company still acknowledges the need to make sure that its apps are fully up to date for use on Apple’s iOS.
The new Gmail app also has and “Undo Send” feature. This offers the same option that the Gmail website has when surfing the web on desktop computers.
In a blog post Google product manager Matthew Izatt stated, “It’s the Gmail you know and love, with a fresh new look, sleeker transitions and some highly requested features. It’s a lot faster, too.”
“With the new app, getting things done on the go is a lot easier — whether you’re trying to find a message your colleague sent you last month or trying to get through your work inbox on a Monday morning.”
The new app also offers faster searches and quick swiping to either archive or delete emails.
As for the updated Google Calendar, users can view either the month or the week in landscape mode, enjoy the ability to search for events within Apple’s Spotlight, and take advantage of alternate calendars such as the Hebrew calendar or the Hindu one for Jewish and Hindu users.
