Gmail Rolls Out Priority Inbox Feature

Gmail Rolls Out Priority Inbox Feature

September 1, 2010 Off By Ramakanth

Google on Tuesday announced it’s going introduce a new experimental feature called “Gmail Priority Inbox“, Google’s answer to e-mail overload.

Normally Gmail is somewhat better than other email services in filtering spam emails, now with this new feature Gmail filters mails that are not considered as spam but also they are not very important—bologna, or “bacn.


This new Feature analyses what you read , what you don’t read and based on this it will prioritize important messages which separates “bologna(un-important)” from the important stuff. According to Google, Priority Inbox automatically identifies your important email and separates it out from everything else, so you can focus on what really matters.

Another best-thing is if Gmail make an incorrect prediction, you can manually adjust the system as easily as you would add a star or delete a message.

    Priority Inbox overview :

  • Automatic sorting:
  • Gmail uses a variety of signals to identify important email, including which messages you open and which you reply to.

  • Sections keep you organized:
  • Incoming email gets separated into sections:
  • Important and unread, starred, and everything else. Don’t like these? Customize them.

  • Predictions improve over time:
  • Over time, Priority Inbox gets better at predicting what’s important to you. You can help train it using the Gmail priority inbox buttons buttons.Gmail priority inbox buttons
