Beyond the new rooms, chats, and meetings that will be integrated into Gmail, the Google team is implementing a new dynamic to manage emails from Android.
To delete, archive, snooze or perform most actions in Gmail from smartphone, we just have to perform a swipe effect. Now that dynamic is enhanced with new icons and animations that give a more fluid experience when managing emails.
As mentioned in AP, Gmail is adding new animations to the scrolling effect and new icons that identify the action being performed… move the email, snooze it, delete it, archive it, or mark it as read.
A much simpler way to easily identify any option, either by color or icon, and not waste time trying to fix an error in the action we perform on the email. Of course, these swipe actions are optional, so the user can enable them or not.
Or you may want to enable only those that you use most frequently. These options are configured from General Settings >> Swipe Actions, and can be changed as many times as necessary to adapt them to our criteria.
This new feature seems to be being implemented in the latest version of the Gmail app for Android, so if you still do not see this dynamic available, patient. Recall that this is not the only new feature coming to Gmail on Android, as rooms, chat sections, and meetings are being implemented from its interface.
