This post will walk you through altering the default Gmail app settings to make your inbox look more comfortable or compact. Here’s a quick guide to change conversation view on the iPhone SE 3 2022 Gmail application.
Google allows you to customize your Gmail inbox and organize all accumulated emails based on how you’d like them to appear in your inbox. All you need is to access your Gmail account’s settings menu to make necessary changes. And here’s how it’s done on the latest special edition iOS device.
iOS 15 Gmail Conversation List Density
One way to keep your emails organized is to group them together accordingly like a dedicated category for emails with the same subject and another group for those coming from the same sender. This way you can easily keep track of your emails and promptly respond to those that need urgent replies.
The Google Mail app realizes this concept with its inbuilt email setting called Conversation View.
When enabled, conversation view allows you to set whether emails of the same subject are clustered together. As a result, users would no longer need to open several emails to keep track of the conversation or scour for a specific email message that you’ve already read and replied to.
By default, the view format of all emails appearing on the Gmail inbox is set with the sender’s logo, preview lines and attachment previews at the bottom.
If you’re not comfortable with it, then you can change the default and switch to a Comfortable or Compact view. To make all these changes, you will need to access the Gmail app settings for your account and then configure the conversation list density options.
For starters and those who are new to the iOS platform, the outlined steps depict the actual process of applying these Gmail settings on the new iPhone SE 3 smartphone. Feel free to refer to this quick walkthrough when needed.
Steps to Change Conversation View on iPhone SE 3 (2022)
The following procedure is also applicable when altering the default Gmail conversation view for important emails and conversations on other iPhones with the same iOS version with that of the 3rd generation special edition variants. However, there may be some slight variations on the actual user interface on every device given that screens and menu items may likewise vary between device models and service providers.
One way to have all important email features and options accessible is to keep both the iOS and Gmail application up-to-date. To miss any important app updates, enabling automatic updates on your iPhone is recommended. Otherwise, manually install pending software updates via App Store and iOS settings.
Once you’ve got everything set, you may go ahead and proceed with these steps:
Step 1: To get started, open the Gmail app by tapping on the Gmail icon from the Home screen.
Step 2: While in the Gmail app’s main (inbox) screen, tap the Menu icon located on the top-left corner.
Step 3: Tap Settings from the side menu options to proceed. The Gmail app’s settings menu will open next.
Step 4: In the Gmail app settings menu, tap on your email (account) address.
Step 5: From your email account’s settings menu, find and then tap to turn the Conversation view switch ON. Doing so will group all emails with similar content.
Step 6: After turning on Conversation view, tap the Back key to return to the main settings menu of the Gmail app.
Step 7: Then, tap Conversation list density. A pop-up window will show up next. Here, you will see the preview of the default conversation view which is set to default.
Step 8: To change it, just tap to choose between Comfortable and Compact.
Step 9: After changing the default conversation view, tap OK to save and apply recent changes.
Step 10: To choose a different view, just repeat the same steps to the Conversation list density menu and then select your preferred conversation view to use.
And that’s how you manage and alter the default conversation settings on the iOS Gmail app to make the conversation view/list density more comfortable or compact.
Should you wish to revert back to the default option, just repeat the same steps to return to the main settings menu on your iOS Gmail app and then set the Conversation list density back to the default option.
If you’ve got multiple accounts, verify and ensure that the correct account is set and selected for the Gmail app. Note that the changes you made through these steps are only applicable to the account that’s set up for Google Mail (Gmail) on your iOS device.
