The new update of Gmail app on Android makes the swipe gestures even more versatile and productive. The latest update for the Gmail app on Android will covers most of the users. We also found that the swipe customization feature has already made its way to even older versions like Android 5.0 Marshmallow through the update.

By using the ‘Swipe actions’ option present  in the Settings, you can choose from five different actions with the left and right swipe gestures or you can even deactivate them altogether.
