Gmail now allows users of the Android app to customize actions by swiping a message to the right or left. Before the update, gestures were restricted to two behaviors: delete or archive an email. It is now possible to choose from six different options to link to finger movement.
"Mark as read / unread", "Move to", "Postpone", "None", besides, of course, Delete and Archive are the action alternatives offered with the update. Check out how to configure in the step by step below, performed on a Moto Z2 Play running on Android O (8.0).

Step 3. Note that the Swipe right and Swipe left options will be displayed. The actions defined for both can be customized by tapping Change. Then, the desired behavior options for gestures will appear. Touch the one you want and repeat the process if you want to change the action performed on the swipe in both directions.
In this tutorial, we chose Delete when dragging to the right and Mark as read / unread when swiping to the right.
