Android users can now customize Gmail swipe actions

Android users can now customize Gmail swipe actions

It appears Google isn't done making Gmail a lot more useful. In a recent update, Google is giving users some new options for customizing in-app actions.

Once you've updated to the latest version of the Gmail app, head to Settings and then in General Settings go to the Swipe Actions section. With these shortcuts you can easily churn through that daunting inbox with hundreds of unread messages, and whittle them down in a flash by swiping left or right. Earlier this swipe action was confined to just archive irrespective of the work. The first change that you'll only notice if you head to General settings / Swipe actions is the addition of new gestures.

Let us know if you are seeing the new options!

Choose your own swipe actions with the latest Gmail for Android

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.

As you can see in the screenshot above, users now have the option of changing what those swipes mean.

As of now, this option is not available for iOS users of Gmail, but it is expected that very soon the company will launch an upgrade update for iOS users too.
