These days everyone is using Gmail. It really is quite handy, as a Google account holder you are not restricted to just the mail function you can also write documents, create lists and even design presentations.
The only disadvantage Gmail has had so far was the lack of organisation of the individual emails. But wait what about the Priority Inbox. For those of you who weren’t aware of this function the Priority Inbox subdivides all the incoming emails into three categories, the most important, middle and bottom section. In order to sort your messages to the different sections it tries to analyse them. It does this by looking at how often you opened and replied to emails from certain contacts.
The new Inbox has basically the same concept. However it subdivides all your messages into several categories, Primary (messages from real people), Promotions (advertisements), Social (Twitter and facebook), Updates (certain notifications, bills), and Forums (mailing lists like from mailchimp). Each individual section shows, how many unread messages are in it.
Basically this concept is way easier than the priority box, as it doesn’t try to find out which messages are more important to you.
This update will be available for all Gmail customers within the next few weeks and it also includes a version for Android and iOS apps.
What are your thoughts? Do you think this will be a useful update?
4pm hope your Monday wasn’t too tough!
