Gmail Unveils ‘Unsend’ Option

Google announced Tuesday it will officially enable an “unsend” button for Gmail that allows users to set a five- to 30-second grace period after hitting “send” on an email to rescind that email, which should help users who accidentally hit “reply all” or send an email impulsively and want to take it back. What do you think?

“The churlish tone of my emails is no accident.”
