Sometimes, we just don’t have access to our computer to manage our inbox. This is why we often use our phones to clear out unwanted emails, but using the Gmail app, it’s extremely tedious. However, according to 9To5Google, Gmail will finally let us select multiple emails on the Android version.

Managing your inbox using the Gmail app is one of the most frustrating things to do, especially if you have a ton of emails. You’re only able to select one email at a time. As you can imagine, if you have thousands of emails to delete, it’ll take quite some time.


Thankfully, Gmail for Android will let you select multiple emails at a time

When you get this feature, Gmail will give you a Select All feature. So, you’ll be able to select more than one email at a time, but the name of the feature is misleading. It’s called “Select All”, but it doesn’t actually select all of the emails in your inbox.

When you tap on the option, it will only select 50 emails at a time. That will make clearing out your inbox exponentially faster, but it’s a little disappointing.

If you’re looking forward to cleaning up your inbox, this feature is making its way to Pixel and Galaxy devices for the time being. It’s being seen on devices running Android 13 and Android 14. It’s going to make its way to more devices as time goes on.

The feature was seen on the Gmail app version 2023.08.20.561750975, but this is a serverside update. This means that updating your app to that version won’t guarantee that you’ll get the feature. You’ll need to wait for it to reach your device.

We’re not sure when Google plans on rolling this out to everyone, so you’ll need to wait for it to make it to you. If you’re thinking about cleaning your inbox in the meantime, you can use the desktop version of Gmail. It also lets you select 50 emails at a time.
