Hello Friends,

Google is innovating and bring new features to its services and this time Gmail gets its share of new feature. With the view to give users more control over the content they receive everyday in their inbox, Google has redesigned Gmail for both mobile and Web, and has done away with the single inbox. The new inbox groups your mails into categories which appear as different tabs. These categories include Primary, Social, Promotions and Updates.

There is a separate tab titled "Primary" for your important mails that you really want and can't afford to miss. Updates form social sites like Google+ and YouTube will appear in the social tab, and users can comment directly from the tab, without having to go to the social site to reply. Similarly, there are different tabs for promotions and offers, and updates, bills and receipts.

Users can customize the new inbox. They can select the tabs they want from all five to none, drag-and-drop to move messages between tabs, set certain senders to always appear in a particular tab and star messages so that they also appear in the Primary tab.

In the Gmail for Android 4.0+ and Gmail for iPhone and iPad apps, users will see Primary mail when they open the app and can easily navigate to the other tabs.

In case you don't like the concept of new inbox, Google allows you to switch off all optional tabs to go back to classic view, or switch to any of your other favorite inbox types.

Google is rolling out the new inbox gradually. The desktop, Android and iOS versions will become available within the next few weeks. But if you'd like to try out the new inbox on Desktop sooner, keep an eye on the gear menu and select Configure inbox when it appears in the Settings options.

Thanks for reading and tell us whether you like this new Gmail inbox or not? And please like our Facebook page if liked this article thank you :)
