Gmail for iPhone Goes Mute – News Of The Day
Gmail for the iPhone and iPod Touch saw a nice update last month that made it faster and easier to use. Yesterday Google took another step in this direction with a small, but fantastic, new feature called "Muting".
Muting a message opts you out of further messages in any given thread. For example, if there is a converstion taking place between four co-workers but it is not in an area you work, you no longer have to see the additional 97 emails on it.
The "mute" is in the drop-down options under More.
I’m embarrassed to admit that I didn’t know about this feature in Gmail at all but now that I do I’ll be using it a lot on both my iPhone and desktop.
