Choose your own swipe actions with the latest Gmail for Android

Last April, Google announced the biggest update for Gmail for the first time in a long while, introducing a slew of useful features to its email service.

Once you've updated to the latest version of the Gmail app, head to Settings and then in General Settings go to the Swipe Actions section.

"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. Until now, it was impossible to designate a certain functionality to swipe gestures - doing so only archived an email.

There are about a million email clients available, but Google's own Gmail app is my personal favorite just because it works so well. You know the little swipe left or right shortcuts that previously only let you archive or delete?

Gmail's' new swipe options aren't extremely feature-rich, to be sure, but they're sufficient enough to get certain things done.

However, the folks at Android Police have been given the power, and when they go into Settings General Settings, they can tap on the "Swipe actions" option to open up a new customizable interface.
