Gmail for Android is Finally Going to Let You Customize Swipe Actions

10 June 2018

The ability to swipe emails in Gmail has been a joy to use, in Gmail a swipe to the right or left will, by default, archive an email - but what if you want to customise that? 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.

The swipe actions, that come as part of Gmail's updated version 8.5.20, will include the archive, delete, mark as read or unread, move to and snooze options, Android Police reported on 8 June.

Congo gov't says Jean Pierre Bemba has the right to return home
He said Bemba would probably go to Belgium to meet with his family there before returning to Congo after he is released. He sent fighters from the Movement for the Liberation of Congo to vehicle to suppress an attempted government coup.

As you can see in the screenshot above, users now have the option of changing what those swipes mean. Until now, it was impossible to designate a certain functionality to swipe gestures - doing so only archived an email. These customizable swipes were initially spotted in an APK teardown of an older build of Gmail which meant that Google was already working on the feature which we guess is finally here.

To customize the option, head into Gmail for Android's settings - general settings - swipe actions and choose what you'd like your swipe action to do. If you're an iOS user then do share your reviews about this new feature by commenting below.
