Gmail for Android Gets Customisable Swipe Actions With Latest Update


Earlier Google updated its Gmail for desktop users; nearly everything was upgraded to a new level.

It appears Google isn't done making Gmail a lot more useful. Sadly, though, that and deleting were the only options. Users can set either left or right swipes to trigger any of the following actions: archive, delete, mark as read or unread, move, or snooze.

However, the folks at Android Police have been given the power, and when they go into Settings General Settings, they can tap on the "Swipe actions" option to open up a new customizable interface.

The feature works as of version 8.5.20 of the Gmail Android app, but note that Snooze requires the new version of Gmail. Now, the search giant seems to have rolled out another draw to Gmail for Android: the ability to modify swipe actions. Google is not the first one too offers its email platforms users with such options, there are plenty of other platforms which are already serving this feature. You can also choose the None option to remove any actions from the particular swipe. Are you happy to see this feature finally added to the mix? No word yet on when the swipe gestures will come to iOS.
