Good news for Gmail users! Google has finally given us the feature we definitely need the most: undo sent (hate) emails. This is how it works: the outgoing email will be delayed for five to 30 seconds, which gives you enough time to cancel your mail.

Google announced the feature earlier this week along with its new inbox version. However, the feature is only applicable on web for now and hasn't been made available on mobile devices.

Besides that, the tech giant will also be launching its own Google Play Music service, which is very much like Spotify and Songza, except that it doesn't allow users to select the songs. Product manager Elias Roman believes most users are looking for a "lean back" experience. He told The Verge"They want the music to be awesome. They want it to be contextually relevant, but they don't want to tweak a lot of knobs." You read our minds, Elias.
