Gmail gets a new tabbed inboxes to reduced clutter

Google has been working to condense the clutter in our inboxes for some time and has just declared a significant update to Gmail, both on the web and on mobile, to further combat the trouble.  The update brings tabbed inboxes to your Gmail that automatically divide the mail you receive into categories.

According to the official Gmail blog, you'll be able to select which categories will be enabled as tabs (Social, Promotions, Updates, or Forums, as well as "Primary" for your classic inbox). The tabs will show you how many new emails you have for each category and offer another way to classify your inbox. You'll be able to drag-and-drop messages between tabs and set specific senders to always appear in a certain tab.

They can choose to keep mails from a exacting sender to always appear in a particular tab and can star them so that they also appear in the Primary tab. So, users would be able to keep update emails from their social networks under one tab, while they can keep their personal mails in one, mails regarding to forum threads in another and business mails in another tab.

The new redecorate will be rolled out regularly and will become accessible within the next few weeks, according to Google. Users might even get early access to the redesign on the desktop interface and can switch to it via the ‘Configure inbox’ option in the settings. So they can keep a watch on the gear menu.

The new update will also be sent out to Gmail for Android "within the next few weeks". The new Android application will support the tabs by placing them in a left sidebar which you can take to in order to choose which inbox to view.
