Where has "Message text garbled?" gone?

Can anyone confirm that "Message text garbled?" has been removed from the "More" dropdown when viewing an email?

Does anyone know why it's gone and how I can get it back?

I have also noticed this as well, I have been using this feature for a good month to view text versions of emails.

It seems that it has just vanished.

Hi William25 & Peter,

Thanks for posting on the Gmail Help Forum.

I'd suggest you please send the feedback on missing feature.

Please use the feedback option within the app as the Gmail team is tracking these reports directly.

To do so from the Gmail app for iOS:

  1. Touch the menu on the top left Menu.

  2. Touch the gear icon.

  3. Touch Help and Feedback....

  4. Touch Send feedback.

Sending in-product feedback allows Google to automatically collect some additional account/app/device information that will allow our Engineers to debug each case-by-case issue.

Although you will not receive a reply, they're using this feedback to fix and improve the overall product experience.

Thanks for your patience.
