Gmail updates options to include ‘Block,’ ‘Unsubscribe’ features

Gmail now lets you block specific email addresses, unsubscribe from newsletters in the Android app.

Gmail now lets you block specific email addresses with the click of a button — the feature is rolling out today to Gmail on the Web, and will arrive in the Android app “over the next week.” The block sender option does exactly what you’d expect: It puts the email address into a block list that tells Gmail, “Never show messages from this person again.” Future emails from blocked addresses go in the spam folder, and you can always unblock the sender in Gmail’s settings.

This might be a bit confusing, so we asked Google to lay it out for us: Blocking a sender will result in having all future messages from a specific email address be moved directly to spam. You can now thus opt out of mailing lists directly from the Gmail app. “It’s perfect for those newsletters you subscribed to a while back but don’t read any more,” the company explained. Update: “No ETA yet for an iOS or mobile web launch,” a Google spokesperson told VentureBeat. “Currently, this feature is exclusive to Gmail Desktop and Android app.” Both these features help you avoid unwanted emails in your Gmail inbox.
