Google Voice’s terrible UI permanently deletes messages without prompting

Deleting no longer prompts on Android (Delete icon next to Archive)

Please forgive me being cynical here, but some genius(es) decided to put the Delete icon next to the Archive icon on Android, and it doesn’t prompt when removing multiple items. I only wish I were joking, but since Google Voice removed Trash support—this means users are just a small click away from permanently deleting items they intend to Archive, which happened to me today. Pretty much all Google services have a Trash box feature. I don’t understand why they’d get rid of the Legacy Google Voice trash access without implementing something similar on the new interface. Docs are wrong as well, for example:

Says you can search for “in:trash” but doesn’t appear to work.
