Unsubscribing from annoying e-mails just made easier for Gmail users

Google announced yesterday in a Google+ Post, Gmail users will now find the unsubscribe button to the top of messages, next to the sender’s email address. Now, it is expected to be easier to unsubscribe from newsletters, social media notifications and other promotional emails. Google recently tested this feature with small number of users but not rolling out to all Gmail accounts.

“Making the unsubscribe option easy to find is a win for everyone,” Google wrote. “For email senders, their mail is less likely to be marked as spam and for you, you can now say goodbye to sifting through an entire message for that one pesky link.”

Previously, Emails that offered the unsubscribe button had added it in tiny texts at the bottom of the messages but now, it will displayed at the top of the messages. It is expected to work for those emails which include an unsubscribe link within them.

“Now when a sender includes an “Unsubscribe” link in a Promotions, Social or Forums message, Gmail will surface it to the top, right next to the sender address,” said Google.

Also, Google announced to add support for e-mail addresses that contain accented characters and non-Latin characters, For example: Gmail users are now able to send e-mails to, and receive e-mails from people who have an address like 武@メール.グーグル. Last month, the company had also added 13 new languages in Gmail, which aims to make the service become a “global email, reports The Washington Post.
