Google has started to offer a new feature to Gmail users known as Priority Inbox. The new feature marks emails as important by analyzing and figuring out which sender’s emails you read and reply to most. Once enabled, the “Priority Inbox” will show up as your primary inbox (although you can still flip back to your normal inbox view). There will also be a settings tab for the Priority Inbox added to Gmail’s settings allowing you to configure the filtering feature.
Emails in your Priority Inbox are filtered and sorted based on what Gmail determines are most important to you based on the way you send and read emails. The video below introduces and explains the new feature in typical Google style:
There doesn’t appear any official way to activate the feature, but Google promises it will be rolled out over the next week to all users. You can learn more about the new feature here.
