The Gmail web app just keeps getting better and better! If you use the Gmail web app with Safari on your iPhone, you’ll be happy to know that Google has now updated Gmail’s web interface with an “undo” feature.

The web app will now allow users to undo an action such as archive, delete, add/remove a label, or move a message/conversation. When you select one of these actions, Gmail shows a yellow bar that displays what you just and allowing you to undo it, instead of having to dig the message out of the Trash. 

Best of all, the “undo” bar will stay on your screen for a while, even if you navigate to another page within the Gmail web app.

I’m definitely liking this new feature, and will probably start using the web app a lot more. The Gmail web app is available to both iPhone and Android smartphones and can be accessed via the Safari web browser by going to

      The “archived” emails can be accessed by clicking on the “menu” button at the top of the Gmail web app screen and then scrolling down to the “All Mail” option.

  • Super super awesome. Curious as to why this was an update and not originally part of it. Maye I’m lazy and just haven’t looked into it, but how do you mark an email as ‘not read’ in your email?

      To mark an email “unread” simply check mark the email and then a bar will pop up at the bottom of the screen. It will display two options. Next to the “Delete forever” button, there is an icon with two arrows pointing downward (it gives you more options). Tap on it and there will be an option to mark messages as read/unread.
