Google notes, that beginning Jan 23, all existing Sending routing, Receiving routing, Catch-all address and Domain-level routing settings will become read only.
Since, these settings are still active, to make changes, you can click the CONVERT button next to the rule. The converted setting is then placed in the unified Routing section, where all of rules can be managed from one place. The old setting will no longer be visible in the old user interface.
