Those of you keeping track of these things, will know that Google updated its Gmail for iPhone and Android not too long ago, giving it enhanced functionality and stability (details here). At the time Google was touting the fact that it “completely re-architected the code” so that alongside the various performance and visual enhancements, it will be easier for the development team to easily make “performance improvements and new features [available] in the future.” Well, that future is now as the Mountain View search engine giant has released an update to Gmail for iPhone, introducing the “mute” feature.

Associate Product Marketing Manager with Google Mobile, Deng-Kai Chen, explains: “One of my favorite inbox triage techniques is Gmail's 'mute' feature. Once I've muted a message, follow-up emails to the conversation bypass the inbox, keeping it clutter free. With mute now available in Gmail for mobile on the iPhone and Android-powered devices, you can quickly manage your inbox while you're on the go. To access mute - select a message and from the drop-down options on the Floaty Bar, tap 'Mute'.”

If you would like to try out the new feature, all you have to do is visit gmail.com from the browser in your iPhone or Android-powered G1. For extra convenience you can add a Gmail home screen link by following these steps:
- Fire up the browser and go to Gmail. Sign in and then proceed to the next step.
- Menu -> More -> Bookmark page -> OK
- Home -> Menu -> Add shortcut-> Bookmark -> find and select Gmail
- You should now see a Gmail icon on your home screen.

There are a couple of things you need to be made ware of: only iPod Touch and iPhone OS 2.2.1 and Android-powered devices are supported, and the only available language is English.
