Introduction

How often do you send an email without first checking for errors? Isn’t that the case almost all of the time? Fortunately, Gmail, the most widely used email service, offers an “undo send” function that allows users to cancel a message within 30 seconds of sending it. Back in 2015, the feature was only available to a select few users as part of a beta program; now, it is available to everyone. In this article, we have outlined all the details to Recall sent Emails in Gmail. Gmail’s undo send option does not necessarily call back the message, but it waits a certain time before delivering it to the intended recipient.

Step 1: Open your browser then access your Gmail and log in your account. Then click on the settings icon.

Step 2: Now, click on see all settings.

Step 3: Now, search for undo send and in front of undo send option, set the cancellation period to 30 seconds.
