Words are a powerful tool. And it’s true when people say, “Words can’t be taken back once said”. It’s true not just for verbal conversations, but also in written communications. Letters or mails once sent can’t be stopped while being sent. Years since its introduction, Gmail had the benefit of being the most used email service by millions. But it still lacked the feature found on other mailing services like Outlook. Especially, the ability to recall an email. Gmail users were delighted to know that Gmail too supported this feature later on.
