New Gmail Feature ‘Mail Goggle’ Won’t Let You Regret For The Emails You Sent

There are many cases where you send an email to someone or more specifically to your girl friend in hurry, late night friday or possibly when you are drunken and later you regret for that email. To avoid this, on Perlow, Gmail engineer has introduced a new feature called “Mail Goggles” that will prevent you in such case.

When you enable Mail Goggles, it will check that you're really sure you want to send that email. And what better way to check than by making you solve a few simple math problems after you click send to verify you're in the right state of mind?

By default, Mail Goggles is only active late night on the weekend as that is the time you're most likely to need it. Once enabled, you can adjust when it's active in the General settings.

Hopefully Mail Goggles will prevent many of you out there from sending messages you wish you hadn't.
