Gmail’s Undo Send feature gives users of Google’s free email service up to 30 seconds to change their mind on a sent email before it leaves their outbox.

I’m writing this in an email draft right now. I love Gmail’s auto-saving drafts a lot. Putting stuff in drafts makes it easily accessible and searchable. I know I’m not alone in compulsively saving things in “drafts” that aren’t emails. What’s the strangest thing you’ve got saved?


Organising Your Gmail Contacts Is About To Get So Much Better

Organising your contacts in Gmail historically atrocious. And now, thanks in part to the demise of Google+, it’s about to become way better.
