Design suggestion for conversion

I really love the way everything looks so minimalist and gestures have been working good, the only issue that’s been bugging me is that I have to hold on the conversation to mute/delete/ pin it, I think it might be better to use gestures like swipe from right to the left to show those options and holding for bunching up the different conversations?
And for root I think can anything like Amazon Kindle be added there ? Like it is very lovely to read stuff on so reading a book from Kindle there would be very lovely I don’t know if that’s possible though, but I think it should be maybe thank you
