Imagine, for a moment, if you didn’t have to select emails one by one to archive, delete, or mark as read. 9to5Google is reporting That Gmail for Android now has a “Select All” button that selects 50 emails at a time.
Now, a certain type of reader will surely wonder: why doesn’t the “select all” button select all emails? I greet you friend. But Gmail for Android has infinite scrolling, so selecting all emails would be really complicated. all emailsnot just a page of them.
Maybe they should change the name of the button.
Desktop Gmail also lets you select 50 emails to start, but it doesn’t call the “select all” button, and there’s an additional “select all conversations in inbox” button you can press after your first 50 emails to add the rest. . For me, that’s 73,792 emails. I’m so tempted to make them all disappear.
By the way, I still don’t see this change on my Pixel, despite having the latest version of the app. 9to5Google says it is being implemented as a server side change, so you won’t see it until it’s there.
