1,012

Gmail is preparing to add an Unsubscribe feature to its Android app, allowing users to easily opt out of specific marketing emails on their mobile phones.

This particular function has been accessible to users on desktop and iOS platforms since its introduction in 2014. Now, after an almost ten-year span, it’s finally becoming accessible to Android users as well, marking an expansion of this feature across different operating systems.

The upcoming update was unearthed by The SpAndroid within the beta edition of the application, hinting at a possible improvement in the overall user interface and experience.

Though it hasn’t been released to all Android users yet, this updated version of Gmail for Android is still under development. Google has not disclosed the precise date of this update’s deployment.

According to The SpAndroid, the Unsubscribe button might only be compatible with phones running Android 14, further adding to the anticipation and eagerness among Android users for the latest functionalities.

However, there are more changes in store for Android users’ Gmail app in addition to the Unsubscribe option. According to an Android Authority article, Google is allegedly developing new features like a predictive back navigation capability. 

A possible redesign of the app’s UI is also suggested by the talks of adding a quick compose box in place of the Reply, Reply All, and Forward buttons.

For Android users eagerly awaiting the Android 14 update, the availability largely depends on the smartphone manufacturer and the age of the device. 

Updates are often more likely to occur more quickly on newer devices. New Android releases often find their way onto Google’s Pixel phones, and Samsung is also renowned for rolling out updates to its most current models rather quickly.

However, the timing of Android updates varies among manufacturers, and some commit to providing at least three Android upgrades. 

For users who have already received Android 11, 12, and 13, the likelihood of getting Android 14 might be uncertain. It’s advisable to check with the specific phone manufacturer regarding their update policies for more clarity.
