Gmail's New Inbox Tabs
Gmail has rolled out its new categorized tabs feature in inbox that put you back in control so that you can see what's new at a glance and decide which emails you want to read and when. In the Gmail New Inbox Your messages are arranged by category, so you can focus on the ones the matter and read other all at once. Using Google’s smart content recognition technology the new Gmail inbox automatically organizes your emails and put them into five tabs; primary, social, promotions, updates and forums.
How Gmail Organizes Your Tabs
In Gmail’s new inbox, the ‘Primary’ tab keeps your person-to-person conversations and massages that don’t appear in other tabs. The ‘Social’ will show you messages from social networks like Facebook, Tweeter, Google+, media-sharing sites, online dating services, and other social websites. The ‘Promotions’ tab will keep all your deals, offers and marketing emails. Personal, auto-generated updates including confirmation, receipts, bills and statements are all organized in the ‘Updates’ tab. The ‘Forum’ tab will hold your emails form online groups, discussion board and mailing lists.
These categories make it easy to read messages of the same type all at once, and keep track of your mail. You choose the tabs you want. And, if you see a message you want in a different tab, all you have to do is drag and drop it into the tab you choose. Starring a message will show it in the primary tab as a way to ensure you don’t lose sight of it. You can also choose to have a sender always appear in a particular tab.How to Enable and Disable Gmail Inbox Tabs
