Suffering from email overload? Have so much coming in you can’t find the important messages you need?
Gmail is responding to the frustrations so many of us share with a new inbox – Priority Inbox. The new filter tool will not only ID spam but also stuff that’s just not as important. Stuff you might call – bologna. The new feature was Michelle’s featured “Click Pick” on WHNT News 19 This Morning Friday.
Priority Inbox splits your inbox into three sections: “Important and unread,” “Starred” and “Everything else.” As messages arrive, Gmail uses various signals – mostly what you read and reply to – to sort conversations into the different categories. You can also help the process along yourself by marking messages as important or not.
Google said on its blog that the roll-out has been a long time coming, “After lots of internal testing here at Google, as well as with Gmail and Google Apps users at home and at work, we’re ready for more people to try it out.”
Priority Inbox will be rolling out to all Gmail users, including those using Google Apps, in the coming weeks.
