Previously Google messages enable you to archive that conversation that is no longer needed by swiping them away from the app’s home screen. That swiped conversation directly goes into the archive page it doesn’t matter whether swipe left or right.
After Android 10 introduced gestural navigation Swipe actions become difficult. This feature is easy to enable going back when you mistakenly send your messages to the archive. In Google messages, this method becomes tough in recent months, when the app featured a navigation drawer that same as the gesture swipe it open.
To remove unwanted messages Google Messages beta version 20220721 brings the Swipe actions option in the settings. This new option will change your previous messages swipe experience.
Google messages provide options to send your conversation to archive, delete it altogether, or do nothing at all.
What Google Messages ‘Swipe Actions’ mean:
- The UI of this feature same as the available in the Gmail app on Android.
- Google Messages swipe actions just like Gmail to allow the left and right swipes to be set to different options.
For those users who want to avoid mistaken swipes, they can choose either to disable one or both directions. On other hand, the power user appreciates this feature of archive left and right swipe other than delete.
Google messages plan to enhance this feature as compared to Gmail’s Swipe actions. In google messages, you archive conversation as a right or left swipe but in Gmail, you can also mark read/unread or snooze them by swipe.
This feature is now only in the beta version and after a few weeks, Google messages users will be able to use it. If you want to use this feature now you just need to sign in to Google Messages beta with a few clicks.
