Google has today started rolling out a new version of Gmail for iOS devices that brings in a host of new features including the ability to “undo” or unsend a message that you’ve just sent and the ability to archive or delete messages by simple swiping gestures. Not just this, the new version of Gmail has also got a huge upgrade in terms of performance and speed.

Undoing/unsending a mail you just sent was a comfort only web and Android users could enjoy until now. iOS users, on the other hand, had to get third-party mail clients to get undo to work. Fortunately, Google has today started rolling out an update that will allow you to do just that.

Similarly, the feature to swipe left or right in the mail app to archive or delete messages was also limited to Android users. This same feature was earlier introduced into iOS by Microsoft Outlook thanks to Microsoft Acompli acquisition.

Along with these two popularly demanded features, the email client will now also provide instant search results just like on Google Search. Unsurprisingly, this feature was also first introduced in Android a long time ago.

That’s not all, according to Google product manager Matthew Izatt, the new Gmail app is a lot faster than the previous version.  Here’s the changelog of the app for the current version as shown on iTunes:

The Gmail you know and love, now with a fresh new look, sleeker transitions and some highly-requested features. It’s a lot faster, too.
– Undo Send: prevent embarrassing mistakes

To download the app, if you don’t have it, just head here. In case you already own Gmail for iOS, just update to the latest version.
