Google Finally Launched “Undo Send” Feature

If I ask you you a question that can you recall a message sent from Microsoft Outlook. Your answer will be "Yes" but if I ask the same question for Gmail then what would be your response.

Most of the people will say "No" who are not aware about this new Gmail feature.

Now you need not to worry about it. Google has finally launched its new feature "Undo Send" from labs into a permanent spot. This has been the longest beta period ever.
