Google could finally be offering a good way to block spam mails

Google is clearly eager to end the menace of spam mails and this new method has been hard-tested for the past year but will it work?

Gmail users have got one of the most important security updates in years and looks to prevent the biggest issue for users. The mailing platform wants to minimise the amount of spam mails reaching your inbox and this update promises to work in that direction to a great effect. Gmail has worked extensively on improving the detection rate for spam mails which the company claims is now 38 per cent better.

But how does that translate into real-time detection and less spam mails coming to the user’s inbox? Google is advancing its detection methods to match the capability of spammers who use invisible characters and keyword stuffing at times to evade Gmail’s spam detection systems.

Google is now building the tech that enables Gmail to read into a spammer’s mind and pick up their tricks instead of raising any alarm. Google is using RETVec (Resilient & Efficient Text Vectorizer) to filter the spam mails that looks to reduce the false detection of such mails.

The interesting part about RETVec is that Google claims it has been testing the technology extensively through tough conditions over the past year, and the results have offered it the confidence to implement it on a larger scale. Google’s new spam detection tech is compatible to work through the web, on-device tracking and other use cases. There are multiple ways in which Google wants to end the menace of spam mails. Google is reportedly introducing a new unsubscribe button in the Gmail Android app, making it simpler to opt out of spam emails.

The Gmail unsubscribe button feature is currently not widely available, and there is no information regarding its availability on iOS devices. As per reports, the Unsubscribe button will be located next to the sender’s information, and tapping on it will unsubscribe you from future emails.
