Google plays prank with ‘drop the mic’ feature

New York: Internet giant Google rolled out “send + drop the mic” feature for its users that will let them have the last word in a tense and unwanted conversation.

However, according to Next Web, this feature is nothing but a prank from Google on April fool’s day.

“Today, Gmail is making it easier to have the last word on any email with Mic Drop. Simply reply to any email using the new ‘Send + Mic Drop’ button. Everyone will get your message, but that’s the last you’ll ever hear about it. Yes, even if folks try to respond, you won’t see it,” Google’s official blog read on Friday.

When you drop the mic, your email will also include an explanatory image — just to help set expectations.

Gmail Mic Drop is launching first on the web, but mobile updates are on the way. So stay tuned, and stay saucy, the blog added.
