Unsubscribing in the Gmail app just got quicker, but only on iOS
Let’s just hope Android users won’t have to wait tlong.
A while back, Google was rumored to be working on an easier way to unsubscribe to emails in the Gmail app. And now, the folks at the Android Authority have spotted an “unsubscribe” button in the Gmail app for iOS.
The button is located below the email’s subject line but above the email content.
Unsubscribe with a single at on the Gmail app on iOS
While there already was a way to unsubscribe to emails on the Gmail app, this way is more convenient.
Previously, users had to tap the three-dot menu at the top of the message window and then select the “unsubscribe” option from the list or scroll to the bottom of the email and look for the sender’s “unsubscribe” button.
In contrast, the new approach requires a single tap, eliminating the need for scrolling and searching.
This new method is vastly similar to the unsubscribe button on Gmail’s web version, placed below the subject line and next to the sender’s details.
Although we love the app’s approach to the new unsubscribe button, it is currently exclusive to the iOS version. Android users are yet to experience this convenience.
It wouldn’t be a matter if this way any other app, but it’s kind of a shame that Google’s own platform didn’t get this feature first.
However, it’s not the first time Google brought new features to iOS before Android. So, don’t worry. Google should roll out the feature to the Android version of the app soon.
