What you need to know

  • A new setting may soon arrive on Google Messages, allowing users to edit the swipe gestures so that they archive or delete messages.
  • Users will also be able to turn off the swipe gestures if they so choose.
  • This feature is similar to one already available on the Gmail app.

A future update to Google Messages will likely allow users to further customize how the app handles messages. More specifically, it will let users change how swipe actions work in the app.

As it stands, Google Messages allows users to archive a message by swiping it left or right from the inbox. It’s a pretty limited experience at the moment, but 9to5Google discovered an upcoming feature that will allow users to choose what happens when they swipe from either side.
