Gmail for iOS is finally receiving an update many users were waiting for quite a long time. It is the update which adds the ability to customize swipe gestures on the Gmail app. This functionality was released for Android devices last year and now after nine months, it is available for iOS users as well.
Like Android counterpart, Gmail for iOS now allows anyone to customize the swipe gesture function. A user can choose from Archive, Delete, Mark as read/unread, Move to, Snooze, and None. These options are accessible via app settings and are available in the form of a pop-up menu.
The app supports up to two gestures for emails which can be accessed by swiping left and right. It is up to the user whether he wants to add the same functionality for both side swipes or a separate one for each of the two. Once assigned, these functionalities can be changed anytime a user wishes.
Google has made this Gmail app available on the App Store but it may take some time for it to become available for your particular device. Just keep an eye on any new updates and install them as soon as possible.
