Gmail Mobile Apps Add Conversation View Turn Off Feature

On the web version, the ability to turn off the threaded conversation view was added almost immediately after it was released.

Even though the web version had the ability to turn off the feature, the mobile versions were left behind. Now, Google has finally added the option on the Gmail mobile apps to turn off the threaded conversation view. This is great news for everyone using the Gmail iOS or Gmail Android app. You will notice the change rolling out right now. If you do not see the change quite yet, you can always download the new Gmail update from Apple’s App Store or Google Play Store.

With the new option, you will be back to just getting each email in your Inbox like it used to be.

To turn the threaded conversation view off, you can just click on your account name. You will find this from within the Settings menu. Once there, you will see where it says “Conversation View” and you can just check this box. After that box has been checked, things will go back to the normal old school way, which is good news for a lot of people.

The whole threaded conversation view decision is more a personal preference, since some people do claim it helps them keep track of the latest conversation.
