Google adding unsubscribe and block features to Gmail app for Android


Email is still one of the most popular ways of correspondence, but sometimes an email arrives that you just don’t want to see, specifically when it comes from the same address over and over again. Luckily for Gmail users, a big change is coming to help with that.

Google has announced that Gmail for Android is picking up a pair of new features in the next week (it’s already available on the web). The first of which is “block,” which, as the name implies, will let users block a sender so that any future emails that they receive will immediately go into the Spam folder. This is certainly a welcomed addition, and for anyone that wants to unblock someone, that can be handled from the Settings option in the app.

And, if that wasn’t enough, Gmail is also picking up the unsubscribe feature in the app, which means that users can delist themselves from eligible mailing lists right from the app. Ditching a newsletter will hopefully be much easier than ever before on a mobile device.

Gmail’s¬†update should be rolling out over the next week, so keep an eye out for those new features.
