Gmail for Android has just been updated to version 4.2.1 incorporating a lot of new features among which include the ability to zoom in messages and swipe to archive or delete a mail.
This update of Gmail makes it easier to see and read the messages. Forget that your emails are cut at the edges, in this latest emails are resized to fit perfectly on the screen and you can pinch to zoom in for a better view. To enable automatic sizing should go to Settings -> General Settings.
Another great new is swipe feature which allows you to swipe left or right to archive or delete emails directly from the inbox. To enable this feature you must go to Settings -> General Settings -> Swiping conversation list.
In addition, all photos are easier to see at first glance. When you open a message with photo attachments, you will see the photo thumbnail and to go to the gallery, just click on the image you want and go sliding on either side to see all the photos. Now you can also add videos you’ve recorded with your phone.
These new features are only available for devices running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or higher.
