A new update of the Gmail app for Android has been rolled out, bringing the version number up to 4.5.2. By “popular demand” of the users, they’ve brought back the delete button as the default setting which shows up after a user long-presses an e-mail. In the previous update, which was actually a substantially revised version of the app, the default option was set to Archive. To bring back the Trash icon, users had to go in the app’s general settings to select “Show delete only” from the Archive & delete actions menu. They will not have to do that anymore, the delete icon has been added to the app by default.
Though it is an old feature, Google highlights in its blogpost regarding this update a feature that allows users to select multiple emails in the conversation list by tapping on sender images. Apart from this, there’s the usual dose of bug fixes blended with this update. The roll out seems to be swift, the update itself is only available to Android devices that run version 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or higher. Gmail for Android version 4.5.2 is now up for download from Google Play Store.
