Trending: PAX has lost its luster: Growth of gaming show mutes the voice of independent developers

Gmail_logoFiring off an email that you wish you could take back is probably as universal an occurrence as forgetting to charge your phone or forgetting a password — it happens to everyone.

Well, now Google is making it official.

After years of being a “popular feature” in Gmail Labs, the company announced that its “Undo Send” option will become a formal option on Gmail on the web.

You must enable your Undo Send in the general tab in Gmail settings, and can customize how long of a grace period you’d like to give yourself, up to 30 seconds, to “undo send” that email you meant for your buddy that you accidentally sent to your mom.

Google adds that those who’ve been using it in Google Labs will automatically have it become their default setting, too.
