A newly announced feature, although technically not new for a few people, will allow Gmail users to easily unsubscribe from email mailing lists that tend to annoy recipients.
From now on, if you receive a generic email from a mailing list, there is an “unsubscribe” button right next to the sender. If you no longer wish to receive emails from them, hit that button, and never be bothered again.
As a note, the sender must include an unsubscribe button in the original email for this to work. If the company/sender doesn’t allow for the option to unsubscribe through email, you will need to find another way of doing so.
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. If you’re interested in the message’s content, it won’t get in the way, and if not, it’ll make it easier to keep your inbox clutter-free.
Here’s just another way Google is making our lives easier.
