Gmail Updates the Inbox with Tabs for Organizing Emails

Posted by at 10:50 am on May 29, 2013

GmailGoogle today announced a sweeping redesign of Gmail’s inbox in desktop browsers, as well as the dedicated Android and iOS Gmail applications.

The changes center on the addition of tabs to the inbox that are meant to help organize different types of emails into categories, such as updates, deals, messages from friends, and so on. Users can choose which of the five tabs they see in their inbox, and the order in which the tabs appear. Messages can be moved between tabs and certain senders can be prioritized to always be visible in the primary tab.

The new mobile apps, which will become available gradually over the next few weeks, default to the primary tab view, but make it easy to view and interact with emails in the other tabs. According to Google, users can switch off the tabs and stick with a classic view of Gmail if they so wish.
