Gmail For Android Updated With Ability To Reply And Archive From Notifications Menu


Today Google released a minor update to its Gmail app for Android. There’s not a lot in the update, but Google has added a handy feature that allows you to reply to and archive emails from the notifications menu. Simply tap on an unread email’s notification to reply or archive. The feature is pretty limited unfortunately, as you can only reply or archive when exactly one email is displayed in Android’s notifications menu. It doesn’t work with a list of unread emails, which seems pretty self-defeating.

“The new app also introduces faster search and better search suggestions so you can find your messages quickly online and offline,” according to Google.
