It happens that you send an email from Gmail to the wrong recipient and want to unsend it. Gmail provides you with the Undo function as a default feature. Soon after you send the mail, you will see three options at the bottom of the page, ‘Message Sent’, ‘Undo’, and ‘View Message’.

Click on ‘Undo’ to unsend the email.
In case, you click on the wrong button or do not click on time, you will miss the opportunity to unsend the message.

How to Change the Amount of Time Allowed to Undo Send?

If you are late to click on ‘Undo’ on time, then you can miss the chance.


In the top right of Gmail, click on ‘Settings’.

Right to ‘Undo Send’ select cancellation period from given options; 5,10,20 and 30 seconds

It is advised to choose 30 seconds as the maximum time to unsend a message.
