Google has always been pretty active in combating spam and unwanted mails. Now Gmail is going a step further by announcing a block feature.
Up till now you could only mark a particular user email as spam, now you’ll also get an option to block this user with a single click. This feature would be coming next week on android.
It is assumed that this would be similar to sending the emails to the spam folder, and you would be able to unblock the user if you want.
In a blog post by Sri Harsha Somanchi, Product manager, it was also announced that there would be an unsubscribe option which would allow you to easily opt out of a mailing list without searching for the unsubscribe button in the mail itself.
