Google is making yet another prominent change to Gmail — one that will make it easier to get work done in a hurry.
The search giant announced on Thursday that its Gmail for iOS app will be updated to add several new customizable swipe actions: archive, trash, mark as read, mark as unread, snooze, and move to [a different folder].
