Gmail for Android Gets Customisable Swipe Actions With Latest Update

Last April, Google announced the biggest update for Gmail for the first time in a long while, introducing a slew of useful features to its email service. Sadly, though, that and deleting were the only options. Available with the latest update version 8.5.20, it is now uncertain whether the feature has been available since the latest version's release date or is a server-side update. You'll now be able to swipe right or left on an email, but you'll have to enable these actions from the new Swipe actions menu. Earlier this swipe action was confined to just archive irrespective of the work. 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.

Gmail's swipe gesture is not the most customizable in this world, but now a user can have enough options to customize it for his better use. The options are quite unusual and exciting.

To make the changes, head over to Settings, tap "general settings", and hit "swipe actions". No word yet on when the swipe gestures will come to iOS. Are you happy to see this feature finally added to the mix?
