Gmail Now Allows You To Disable ‘Conversation View’

Gmail for Android and iOS now has the option to disable the Conversation view, in which multiple emails are combined under a single thread. You do not have to wait for an update of the Gmail app on your Android or iOS device to get the new experience, as the update progressively proceeds via a side update server. It will be available to all users around the world in the next 15 days. Notably, Gmail on the Web already offers an option to disable the Chat view. This primarily helps to find an attachment in an email conversation because you do not have to go through the entire conversation thread to see which email contains the required attachment. However, grouped e-mails can shorten the list of new e-mails if several e-mails are delivered under the same subject.

“In Gmail, e-mail responses are grouped together as” conversations “to facilitate digestion and tracking,” says the G Suite team. written in a blog post while announcing the new Gmail update. “Some users, however, prefer to see each of their emails individually listed in their inbox, this is possible on the web by disabling the Conversation view in the Settings menu, and we are now bringing this same feature to Gmail Android and iOS Applications.”

Users who have already turned off Web Chat will not see mail threads on their Gmail apps either. You can also disable grouped emails by unchecking the Chat view option. Settings > General settings.

While Google has confirmed that the update will be progressively extended to all users over the next 15 days, it is recommended to install the latest version of the Gmail app on your Android and iOS devices to make the Conversation view optional. We were able to detect the change on our Android and iOS devices.
