Gmail's new Swipe Actions could change how you use email on phone

Gmail's new Swipe Actions could change how you use email on phone

Google finally adds new gesture options to Gmail for Android.

It appears Google isn't done making Gmail a lot more useful. Like you can customize whether you wish to put an option to delete forward or archive that particular mail.

Users can now set what specific function happens when they swipe left or right on an email.

The update, rolling out in v8.5.20 of the Gmail app, now lets you tap on the "Swipe Actions" option in Settings which will give you options for both left and right Swipes. But as Gmail is the most public email platform hence this upgrade is a big thing for the tech industry.

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

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.

However we suppose this could still come in handy for users who might be left/right handed and might prefer to use the left/right swipes for different actions than what's being offered in the default settings. If you're an iOS user then do share your reviews about this new feature by commenting below.
