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? Well, the latest update to Gmail now lets you change that.
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. The options for swiping now include: Archive, Delete, Mark as read/unread, Move to, Snooze, and None – and obviously you can customise both left and right.
It’s as simple as checking the radio button on the option you want, or going back to settings to change it if you find that action doesn’t suit your needs.
The update has been rolling out for a while now, but hadn’t arrived on my phone yet so I grabbed it from APK Mirror.
