Finally! Now you can 'unsend' that accidental email

It happens to even the best of us. You're typing a heated email, explaining exactly how you feel to your boss or your friend or your colleague. You hit send, then suddenly it hits you: You just sent that email to the wrong person!

Accidents like this happen all the time, especially now that we have so many distractions online. And, in cases like these, don't you wish there were a way to undo that mistake?

If you use Gmail, now you can. At least if you're using the iOS app.

The latest version of the app includes a feature that allows you to "unsend" a message. After sending an email, a message will pop up that will ask if you'd like to take the action back. The message appears for only a few seconds, so you have to act fast. But it gives you the opportunity to double check what you've sent.

That's not the only improvement for the app. Message archiving will be more streamlined and the searches will be faster. One of the biggest changes is that the search feature can now make educated guesses on what you're looking for even if you have a few spelling mistakes.

Of course, the downside is that these improvements will only benefit those who use the Gmail app on their iPhone or iPad. If you're using one of these devices, you'll also need to be sure that you've upgraded to iOS 10 to see the new features.

For everyone else, don't worry. We've got a handy trick for you as well. Click here and learn how to stop people from ignoring the emails you send.
