The swipe gesture on Gmail's mobile app used to allow users to only archive an email. But with an update pushed to its Android version in June of last year, the email app has since provided more ways to customize those swipe actions.
It's a long time coming, but customizable swipe actions are now available on Gmail for iOS as well. With this new capability, iPhone users will be able to customize their swipe gestures on an email to perform any of the following options: archive, trash, mark as read/unread, snooze, and move to a different folder.
To get started with these swipe gestures, simply head over to the settings menu of the app and choose "swipe actions." You can then configure these actions in order to quickly act on emails in the conversation list.
Additionally, Gmail for iOS now provides the option to snooze notifications for a message by either pressing firmly (3D Touch) or long pressing on a notification. Of course, you can keep that notification mute until such time when you want to get notified by a deluge of emails again.
The feature is rolling out from today to Gmail for iOS on all G Suite editions, although Google warns it may take more than 15 days for the rollout to complete.
