Google is going to be adding two new features in Gmail, aimed specifically at making it easier to avoid the constant unwanted clutter in your inbox.  In the past, we’ve seen Google simplifying the inbox by allowing us to send topics to different folders.  Now it’s time to make sure items that belong in the Spam folder go there.

First up is the ability to block specific email addresses.  Google says that you’ll be able to choose to “Never see messages from this person again.”


Upon blocking, future mail from the sender will go into the Spam folder.  Google says that the feature is available on the web today and in the Android Gmail app over the next week.

The option to unsubscribe from mailing lists is coming to Android Gmail app as well.  As implied, you’ll be able to opt out of newsletter subscriptions directly from the app.


What do you think about these new Gmail features?  Hit up the source link below for the official word.

  1. I welcome the ability to unsubscribe directly instead of looking for a link to click on & being taken to a website that doesn’t always unsubscribe you.

  2. I think its s great idea! Its about time! I cannot keep up with my email because when i go to check it which is every other day, there is so much crap! So i have to sit here and delete delete delete. Theres so many that the emails I’m looking for are hidden inbetween the junk! Anyway I’m glad there will b a way to stop the hassle!

  3. But clicking on an unsubscribe link just verifies that your email is really attached to a live human. It then becomes more valuable to sell list style. Just block them and let them waste resources and time emailing, not knowing if anyone is reading it. Also always disable auto load images.
