How the account change by gestures works in Gmail

Well, the truth is that it is quite simple, since once the application is opened and the user interface is in, what has to be done is the following: Drag up or down on the icon with the image you present to the account in the upper right area. In this way, you automatically proceed with the desired change. At that time you saw that the mailing list and the image change automatically, without the rest of the elements offering any animation.
