Undo Send 

This is an awaited feature for most of us because accidently sending emails before complete is a common mistake we do sometimes. Undo Send will help you cancel the sent mail again within a set period of time.

Go to Settings > General Tab > Undo Send Option


Set Auto Events Off from Adding to your Calendar

Google automatically detects an event such as booking tickets, business meeting and adds as an Event in Calendar. Most of the time it is annoying because no one is so much busy that they can not remember their few programs. For them it is better they do not get notified of such things unless they are very much required.
