Gmail android users can now customize swipe actions in their Gmail app

Published on June 9, 2018

Google is in the run of updating all its products with some useful features. And as Gmail is one of the most widely used products of Google, hence the company is expecting a wide range of changes from past few weeks. Earlier Google updated its Gmail for desktop users; almost everything was upgraded to a new level. Now the company has launched a new update for all Android users of Gmail; they can now customize the action of right and left swipe over any email in the inbox.


The updates sound right as it will help you to customize your actions quickly over your emails. Like you can customize whether you wish to put an option to delete forward or archive that particular mail. Earlier this swipe action was confined to just archive irrespective of the work. 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. But as Gmail is the most public email platform hence this upgrade is a big thing for the tech industry.

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. Like he or she can customize it with the actions of the archive, delete, mark as read or unread, move or snooze an email. The options are quite unusual and exciting. A user can set up these options by moving into settings and then general parameters and then by choosing “swipe actions.”

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. If you’re an iOS user then do share your reviews about this new feature by commenting below.
