Google has rolled out a minor update to the mobile web version of Gmail which lets you undo certain actions. It’s a lot easier to accidentally delete a message or hit other wrong buttons on a tiny smartphone screen than in a desktop web browser, so the move makes a lot of sense.
Here’s how it works. When you archive or delete a message, add or remove a label, or move a message a yellow bar will pop up at the bottom of the screen letting you know what you just did — and letting you click an undo button.
The undo option only lasts for a few seconds so it won’t help you retrieve that message you deleted yesterday. But it can make the experience of using Gmail in a mobile browser much easier today.
The Gmail mobile web app is available when you use most HTML5 capable web browsers on Android, iOS, or BlackBerry devices.
