Gmail updated with new gestures on Android

Gmail for Android gets customizable swipe actions

The new update is available now.

It appears Google isn't done making Gmail a lot more useful.

Users can now set what specific function happens when they swipe left or right on an email. Sadly, though, that and deleting were the only options. The latest version of Gmail's Android app lets you customize what swiping does. Earlier this swipe action was confined to just archive irrespective of the work.

Google is rolling out new swipe actions in its Gmail app for Android, making it easier to move, mark as read or snooze emails directly from your email list. 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.

The mobile app has supported swipe gestures for some time now, but the options have been rather limited - toggling between read/unread or archiving/deleting messages. The options are quite unusual and exciting.

In Gmail's general settings, users can select a custom action for a left swipe and a right swipe. Are you happy to see this feature finally added to the mix? No word on whether iOS users have the same features enabled for them yet.
