Gmail Team Launches Priority Inbox

Posted Aug 30, 2010

Gmail is having a big month. Aside from launching Google Voice with free voice calling to Canada and the U.S. through 2010, Gmail has also launched a new feature called Priority Inbox.

People that use Gmail are getting overwhelmed with all of the e-mails that they are getting. Even though there is a Starred feature and Filters feature, it is still tough to prioritize e-mails using Gmail? until now.

The Priority Inbox feature splits your e-mail inbox into 3 sections. The 3 sections include “Important and unread,” “Starred”, and “Everything Else.”

As your e-mail comes in, Gmail will automatically flag e-mails from people that you e-mail frequently. There is a + and – button in Priority Inbox that lets Gmail know if they are correctly marking conversations as important.

Priority Inbox will be rolled out over the next week. You will notice it at the top right corner of your Gmail account when it is available for you.
