While core Android operating system might have had pinch-to-zoom support
for a long time now, the official Gmail app has been lacking the same.
But that seems set to change. A new version of Official Gmail Android
app has appeared online and it shows pinch-to-zoom as well as swipe
According to a report in Android Police, Gmail Android app
version number 4.2 is going to bring both these features to Android
devices. This version will also allow users to mark mails as "phishing".
to what Android users do in maps or browser, you can easily
pinch-to-zoom in the mail text or image to view it clearly. The swipe
support is also same as we have seen in notification bar; you can simple
swipe an email message away to trash or archive now and if you
accidentally do this, there is small undo button also present to save
from any mishaps.
The swipe functionality will also be
configurable, so you set it to archive, delete or just remove the
existing label from an email.
There is no word on when we are
going to see this app version rolled-out in Google Play. There is no
official evidence either to support what Android Police is saying.
We will have to wait to see if Google really brings the pinch-to-zoom and swipe support to Gmail Android app.
