Google seems to be preparing a major update for its Gmail for Android application. According to a report in Android Police, this upcoming update will take Gmail Android app to version 4.2 and introduce couple of cool new features.

Currently on version 4.1.2, the Gmail for Android was last updated on August 1.

The blog seems to have got hold of the new version of Gmail app and found out that new version will come with pinch-to-zoom as well as swipe to archive/delete support.

Similar to the notification bar, you will be able to swipe a Gmail away in archive or trash. The Swipe function will be configurable and you will able to choose whether to delete a message on swiping or archive it or just remove a label.

One other feature will also make its debut in Gmail for Android version 4.2 – the ability to mark a message as phishing.

There is no word on when this version is going to be released, but we are keeping an eye for more details and will let you know as and when it happens.
