More than 1.2 billion users around the world use Gmail to send emails. It is not only used by individuals but also by large organizations. And very often we become part of the email conversations that will soon become a long thread. In overtime, it becomes the most difficult thing on the planet to find a particular thread conversation.
You really must have wished at least once in your life that Gmail presents a function that will help us to deactivate the email threads.
After a point, it becomes a pain of scrolling and discovering a particular conversation (email) sent by someone and you want there to be a method to deactivate the email threads in Gmail. It seems that Google has heard your prayers.
The new feature of Google soon Android and iOS users of the Gmail application will deactivate the conversations.
This means that emails that were previously part of the thread can now be opened individually.
The company stated in its blog post,
“In Gmail, responses to emails are grouped into ‘conversations’ to make them easier to digest and follow, but some users, however, prefer to see each of their emails listed individually in their inbox.”
The function was already available in the desktop version of the client.
Here’s how you can start using the function through the web client:
- Go to the configuration menu
- Touch the Conversation view and click on the option “conversation view disabled”
If your conversation view is disabled on the web, the conversation view will also be disabled in the mobile application.
This is how users of the Gmail application can enable the new function:
- Open the Gmail application on your phone
- Click on the configuration menu and touch the General Settings option
- Now uncheck the box next to disable the view
Google has not yet finished implementing the feature for all users of the application, which will take up to 15 days according to Gmail. Therefore, you may have to wait until the update reaches your device.
