Gmail now lets you 'drop the mic' on any conversation

If you've ever just wanted to put a stop to an email thread, but with a little added emphasis, Google has your back. Thanks to its new "Mic Drop" feature, Gmail users can now literally drop the mic on any conversation.

From Google:

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.


Okay, so this is obviously another April Fools' prank from the folks at Google. But like Emoji search in Google Photos, you can actually use this feature in Gmail — for the time being, that is.
