How to unsubscribe from emails in Gmail

We’ve completed the following steps on an iPhone 15 Pro using the Gmail iOS app, although the steps are exactly the same if using the Android app or the desktop website.

1. Open an email

In the Gmail app, open an email you want to unsubscribe from.

2. Tap the Unsubscribe button

Now simply tap the unsubscribe button. Whatever platform you’re on, it’ll be next to the sender’s contact information at the top of the email. Note that not all emails can be unsubscribed from — only the ones Gmail deems to be from mailing lists.

3. Tap Unsubscribe again

Now tap Unsubscribe again when prompted.
