Google is finally making Undo Send a formal setting on Gmail, six years after introducing it into its experimental Gmail Labs platform.


The new feature will mean Gmail users can cancel a sent email immediately after sending.


“People currently using the Labs version of 'Undo Send' will have the setting turned on by default at launch,” Google said in a statement.

Instagram taps into real-time events and trends


Instagram is rolling out a completely new Explore page in order to help users find real-time events both in their area as well as around the world.


The update is aimed at capitalising on the fact that users often capture newsworthy events on Instagram.


“Whether it’s behind the scenes at the NBA Finals, on the runway with the latest fashion trend at a favorite club with a local band, people are capturing moments large and small on Instagram,” the company said in a statement.


“But, until now, there’s never been an easy way to find these moments.”


The new Explore page will only be available in the United States, but will be rolled out to other countries once Instagram “fine tune[s] the experience” for users.




The Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 24.29 points, rising 0.13% to 18,144.07. The Aussie dollar is trading at around 77.35 US cents.
