Swiping on an email within the Android app has archived that message no matter what, which may have been the best possible option for some users. You'll soon find snooze, move to, and mark as read/unread choices too. Once you make your selection, you can go back to the conversation list and swipe to your heart's content.

It's particularly powerful paired with Gmail's new snooze feature - if the constant ping of new emails drives you insane, you can snooze them until a specified time, bringing you that much closer to email nirvana. While some email clients do this automatically ...

Yep, you are getting more control over them.
