Gmails gets Undo Send from the labs section

Ever watched, in terror, an email being sent just as you realized you were sending it to the wrong person? If so, Google helps save you from it with the recently promoted "undo send" feature.

This undo send has actually been around for quite a while now, although tucked away, far from sight, in the Gmail Labs section. Finally, Google deemed it was worthy enough to become an official feature, and you'll soon get Undo Send for Gmail in your official Gmail settings.

As you'd might expect, this isn't actually capable of recalling a sent email. What it really does is delay the sending of the email (you can choose by how much, from 5 to 30sec) during which you get the option to reconsider and abort it from being sent. This feature is being deployed right now, but it might take a couple of week till it reaches every Gmail user. Once it does, you'll be able to access it via the Settings page (on the gear icon on Gmail page).

Hope the next feature to become official is the "canned responses" that allows you to create preset answers for common emails - couldn't live without it! :)
