Google Letting Gmail Users Turn Off Conversation View

By  |  2 Comments

Using Gmail via your favorite web browser is great….unless you hate conversation view. Scanning through an inbox in conversation view can be an adjustment for those who’ve spent decades seeing a whole new line for each reply to a conversation. Google’s finally giving Gmail users the option to go back to the delight of seeing dozens of copies of the same subject line fill up their inboxes.

With a single click of a radio button, you’ll soon be able to turn off conversation view. This is far from revolutionary, but I like the flexibility. I know quite a few people who’ve given Gmail a shot, but gave up after being flustered by conversation view. Those that use Outlook and other popular emails will probably appreciate the consistency.

    Thank god. I sincerely despise conversation view. I dont know how many times I’ve tried with an open mind, then given up on Gmail because of it. Thanks for the heads up! (navigating to gmail to change setting)
