Gmail now lets you block annoying senders on the Web and Android

Web giant Google has rolled out an update for Gmail that allows you to quickly and painlessly block specific email addresses in just a few taps.

The new block feature is being switched on from today on the Web and will roll out to Android devices in the next week.

Once blocked, all mail from that address will go straight to your spam folder, and if you have a change of heart and want to unblock an address, you can do that in ‘settings’.


The new update also enables Android users to unsubscribe from mailing lists from a mobile device too.


It should be noted that blocking doesn’t stop the emails being received, it just saves you the effort of setting up multiple filters to keep certain emails out of your inbox.
