To avoid disruptive emails and help people using Gmail stay in control of their inboxes, today we’re launching a new Block feature in the Gmail app on Android and the web. Future mail from blocked email addresses will go directly to Spam (and can always be unblocked in Settings).
In addition, the Unsubscribe option is now coming to Android, making it easier to opt out of eligible mailing lists and newsletters directly from the Gmail app.
Check out the Help Center for more information.
Launching to both Rapid release and Scheduled release
Full rollout (1-3 days for feature visibility) for the Block feature on the web. Gradual rollout (potentially longer than 3 days for feature visibility) for the Block and Unsubscribe features on Android.
All end users
