Gmail now lets you block pesky people with just a few taps

Get annoying emails on a consistent basis? Gmail just launched a new feature that allows you to block people with just a few taps.


If you’re one of the many people whose inbox is riddled with unnecessary emails, Gmail launched a new feature today that allows you to block any email address at the tap of a button.
