With Google finally adding a new unsubscribe button to Gmail messages.
The agony of exploring the chain letters and spam emails for an ‘unsubscribe’ button has finally come to an end.
After Google analyses a mail for an ‘Unsubscribe’ link, an ‘Unsubscribe’ button will be displayed next to the sender’s name on top of a mail.
More about the feature
For starters, you will reach the same place by clicking the ‘Unsubscribe’ feature, as you would have had, had you clicked the ‘Unsubscribe’ link in the mail. The feature will simply allow you to do so, without having to scroll an email full of Target ads and (useless) ‘Deals Of The Day’.
On the Gmail Google+ page, Google wrote: “If you’re interested in the message’s content, it won’t get in the way, and if not, it’ll make it easier to keep your inbox clutter free.”
Without taking anything away from this great addition, there still remains the issue of spam mails that do not come with an ‘Unsubscribe’ link. The feature is no good for such mails. It will mainly apply to promotions, social and forum message. So, while this may not be the perfect solution for all your spam, but as Google says, ‘this adjunct shall definitely make the Gmail experience much easier than it was before.’
“Making the unsubscribe option easy to find is a win for everyone,” Google wrote. The mail is unlikely to be marked as spam for the email senders, and for you, you can finally bid farewell to scrolling through an entire message just to find that one annoying link.
Also, rumour has it that a forthcoming version of Gmail for Android may soon be unleashed, which shall bring with it an avalanche of new features. It may not involve a complete visual makeover, but the app may become more effective with the additions of new tabs for Travel, Purchases and Finance, much like the sections added last year.
A snooze feature may also be brought in by Google into Gmail, helping to restore a previously read email back to the inbox after a certain period of time. While we cannot assert which of these features will actually come to life, and of those that will, when. But, one thing is for sure, Google IS heading in the right direction.
