Gmail for iOS has received its most extensive update in four years to make the app faster, more functional and, yes, prettier.

“When you get the next Gmail iOS app update, you’ll notice some exciting changes… It’s the Gmail you know and love, with a fresh new look, sleeker transitions and some highly-requested features. It’s a lot faster, too,” said product manager Matthew Izatt.

New changes available today include:

  • Undo Send — This tool enables users to call back e-mails up to 30 seconds after hitting the send button. The tool was created to handle those digital foot-in-mouth moments when you send a message and then immediately regret it.
  • Search faster — The app now offers instant results as well as spelling suggestions (such as when you type “flighht,” but you meant to write “flight”).
  • Swipe to archive or delete — This quickly clears items out of your inbox.

Google Calendar for iOS has also been updated based on user feedback. The changes include:

  • Month view and week in landscape view — This offers additional ways to see the parts of your schedule you need, and quickly.
  • Spotlight Search support — With this tool, you can search for events, reminders and goals in Apple’s Spotlight Search and it enables you to find what you’re looking for more quickly.
  • Alternate calendars — You can now add non-traditional calendars such as Lunar, Islamic, or Hindu, so you can see dates in those alongside your current calendar.
