Gmail adds new gestures; lets you customise swipe actions to your liking
Maintaining your Gmail account is set to become all the more easier for Android users as Google has started rolling out new gesture features that allow you to perform different actions, including deleting an email or archiving it, by simply swiping the email in different directions.
"Pick the ones you want and when you browse any inbox or folder inside Gmail, a simple swipe in each direction will perform your chosen action," the report added.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.
The update has been rolling for over a week on Gmail for Android but the option has not come to iOS as yet.
The. search-engine giant also introduced an "early adopter programme (EAP)" for its newly designed Gmail with features like Gmail offline and nudging earlier this month.
