Google has been constantly evolving, and now as it tests its nifty new feature for its messaging app, the company appears to have borrowed Gmail’s swipe feature for Google Messages.
The swipe feature, which offers the luxury of instantly sorting through incoming emails, has been around for a while, but it was only recently added to the Google Messages beta. The swipe action is pretty simple in collaboration with Gmail’s feature. Similar to Gmail, Google Messages allows you to set specific actions for each direction by swiping right or left on any message thread. Well, that’s not all. What happens after you swipe in any direction is entirely your call.
Yes, you read it right. Similar to Gmail, you can decide what action to take when you swipe. However, as of now, Google Messages only lets you choose two actions, which are either archive or delete. And frankly, both actions are pretty easy. Also, they will immediately hide the thread, be it for now or forever. In layman’s terms, the new swipe action gives the user the ability to customize left and right swipe gestures. Therefore, users of Google Messages can now choose between “Archive”, “Delete” and “Off”. So if you select swipe right to delete, swiping right will delete your messages, and selecting it as archive will archive your messages. The same goes for the swipe left options. If you don’t like it, you even have the option to turn it off.
