Google adds “block” and “unsubscribe” to Gmail on Android

Dealing with the avalanche of emails in your inbox everyday can be a herculean task — and oh, you are not going to spend all your time with those emails when you have a busy schedule ahead.

Google has provided a sort of relief because it is now easier to block unwanted email senders from reaching your inbox.

According to Google, a simple “block” button to the Android and web versions of Gmail that automatically routes future messages from the sender to your spam folder has been added. The feature can be reversed though, but this has to be done by hitting the Gmail settings.

The feature was first added to the web version, but has now been extended to Gmail for Android. This means you can finally bid farewell to those unwanted newsletters and annoying emails you get from different people. Some users are already seeing this feature on their Gmail for Android. However, some users might need to keep checking until it eventually appears.

It doesn’t get any easier with the new feature as you can now deal with those annoying emails. There were times in the past when the only thing I did every time I logged into my Gmail was to start deleting some annoying emails. Thanks Google/Alphabet, for the big relief.
