Personally, when I compose emails, I try as much as I can to stay on the watch. My eyes on the screen as I go through a sentence over and over again to be sure there are no missing words or misspellings. With this recent development, Gmail won’t be so strict anymore. You could make typos, misspellings, you could also forget to attach documents and there will still be a lifeline before sending that all important document to your boss. Neither of these will be ‘undo-able’ with this new feature. You might have been in the middle of a writing when you mistakenly click send.
Gmail Cancel And Undo Option
The feature works the same on a mobile phone as with Gmail. Once you send an email, for a few seconds, a ‘cancel’ option will appear at the bottom of the screen. After you hit on the option, you will return to the original draft where you can make the desired changes.

Gmail has been allowing its undo send email option since 2015, giving users time to fix typos or attach forgotten files. But, now the company has also rolled out the feature for Android users using Gmail mobile app on mobile phones. The feature is available on Gmail app version 8.7 and further versions of the app.
Also, even if the email is sent, you can still stop the recipient from receiving it by clicking the ‘undo’ option. For Gmail-to-Gmail emails, you can undo mail even if it has been sent from your device, while for Gmail-to-others, the email will take a longer time to deliver, giving you an option to ‘undo’ it in case of an error or any change.
