Gmail for Android now lets you customize swipe actions

It appears Google isn't done making Gmail a lot more useful. Earlier Google updated its Gmail for desktop users; nearly everything was upgraded to a new level.

You can enable the new Swipe actions feature in Gmail's General settings screen, then tap through to the specific Swipe actions page. 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. Sadly, though, that and deleting were the only options. Earlier this swipe action was confined to just archive irrespective of the work. But as Gmail is the most public email platform hence this upgrade is a big thing for the tech industry. Now, users can customize the left and right swipe gesture, choosing to either delete a message, mark one as read or unread, move, snooze, or archive. The options are quite unusual and exciting. The first change that you'll only notice if you head to General settings / Swipe actions is the addition of new gestures. 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.
