The ability to customize your swipe actions has been available on Android for quite a while now, so it's nice to see them arrive on the Gmail app for iOS. Previously, your only option when swiping an email was to delete it, but now you can archive, snooze, and more with swipes, which should help you move through your inbox a bit more quickly.
Google also says that you can use the same actions to triage your notifications, too. This means, for example, that if you like to snooze emails, you can 3D Touch or long press on a Gmail notification and click on "Snooze" to pick the date and time that the email will be snoozed until.
