Google has added a new feature to Gmail making it easier for users to unsubscribe from commercial mailing lists, Venture Beat has reported. Google has had the feature for a while, but only recently rolled it out for all users. “One of the biggest problems with the Gmail spam filter is identifying unwanted mail or soft spam,” said Google’s Vijay Eranti, leader in anti-abuse efforts at Gmail. “We want to empower users with an easy way to control what they want to receive,” he said.
