Gmail has begun testing a new feature that will allow Android users to unsubscribe from unwanted promotional email lists easily, through a new button at the top of the message.
Some of the emails that arrive in the inbox every day contain promotional or spam topics that can be annoying for users. Although these emails usually already have a link through which users are guided to a web page to unsubscribe from the contact list, sometimes it is difficult to find it.
In this sense, Gmail is beginning to test a function with which it aims to provide users with a way to unsubscribe from these massive lists, introducing a button with the ‘Unsubscribe’ option at the top of the email.
This was confirmed by the user AssembleDebug after analyzing the 2023.11.12 update of the Gmail application through Apkmirror for Android and sharing it on the TheSpAndroid blog.
Specifically, as explained, the ‘Unsubscribe’ button will automatically appear at the top of the message in cases where Gmail identifies that it is possible to cancel the subscription.
That is, the application automatically analyzes emails and is able to interpret if there is a link to unsubscribe. If you have it, transform it into a button shape and position it in a more accessible place.
Currently, the desktop version of Gmail already has this function. Likewise, the smartphone app offers a similar option to unsubscribe from these emails, however, it is hidden within the three-dot options menu within the application.
Now, with the new button, the company aims to make the user experience easier for users, facilitating the cessation of emails with unnecessary or uninteresting content and fighting against spam. At the moment this is a function that Gmail is beginning to test on some users.
