Gmail on the web is a pretty great user experience. It has everything you might need from it, but the mobile app is a bit different. Obviously this is the case as Google would have to optimize the experience for mobile, but one feature has been lacking for years – the ability to select all emails.
This is a feature that can be easily found in many email apps, so it’s odd that Google has not included it in the Gmail app, at least until now. According to a recent post on Reddit, it seems that users are starting to discover that in the latest version of the app, the ability to select all emails at once is finally available to them.
Android Police confirmed this themselves with multiple devices and Google accounts which suggests that the changes could be rolling out to a pretty wide audience as we speak, so keep an eye out for it if this is a feature that you’ve been sorely missing.
As noted by the publication, it was initially discovered back in September that a Select All button was being worked on, but it wasn’t ready for the public just yet, so this new report suggests that it’s good to go and that Gmail users who rely on the Android version of the app should be able to expect it soon enough.
