Gmail For Android Gets One-Tap Reply, Archiving From Notifications

By: Chris Crum - March 18, 2013

Google has launched an update for Gmail for Android, which includes the ability to reply to and archive messages from notifications with a single tap.

Here’s what the feature looks like:


“You can combine this with existing notification features like the ability to customize which messages you receive notifications for and set up different sounds for individual labels,” Google software engineer Andy Huang says in a blog post. “So if you filter and label all the messages from your mom, you could set a ringtone to let you know you received a new mail from her and then quickly reply (because we know what can happen when you ignore your mother!).”

The feature is only available for Android 4.1 and up. The app also comes with better search suggestions and faster search, according to Google.

    Change it back to the way it was before. Now I have to refresh every time to see if I have emails, and I have to refresh twice. I’m not the only one experiencing this same problem either.
