If you are sick and tired of your Gmail experience, this might be your lucky day. If you have not yet heard, the Block option is now available on Andriod and Web Gmail versions. The Unsubscribe feature is only available for the Web, but it will hit Android as soon as possible. So it is time to clean up Gmail from all the things that you are not interested in.
We are going to try and keep this as short as possible. If you want to dispose of any unwanted mails, you have to follow these simple steps: open the message that you want to dispose of, tap the overflow menu (you can see the three dots close to the reply arrow) and choose Block or Unsubscribe from [sender name]. These are the three steps that you need to keep in mind.
But how do you know which one to use? It is quite simple. The Block feature is practically an anti-annoying feature. You never ever want to read anything from that mail or company again? You block them. Unsubscribing is for features that you are not 100% interested in, but you might find them helpful. A proper example would be the airline that you haven’t used in 2 years or more. Was it a good airline but you don’t really want to see all their promotions? Simply Unsubscribe.
This might come in handy especially if you are or were interested in making money online. While there are many viable ways for you to do so, the majority of “opportunities” end up as complete disappointments that waste precious time and precious money. Still, even if you decide that you no longer want to take part in the scheme, messages keep pouring in every day.
Every company has their own way of telling you to come back, try something else out, they surely have something that you need and all sorts of similar things, but in the end you just want some peace and quiet and not to wake up every morning with 200 emails that came in overnight and you have to waste your time on sorting out which are good and which need deleting.
So now that these two features are available, you can proceed to sorting out your email. It might take some time in the beginning, but it feels very rewarding when your mail is actually giving you things that you want.
