Many people who already have a Gmail account have probably noticed the new tabs that recently appeared in your inbox. Gmail has included new tabs labeled primary, social, promotions, and updates. With this new feature, your emails will automatically get sorted into these tabs (and more if you wish to customize them). Some people are complaining about the change, while others love it. After testing out the new inbox ourselves, here are our thoughts on this new feature:
With these new tabs, Google does some of the thinking and sorting for you, which can save time when you’re checking your emails. It also eliminates non-urgent emails (such as newsletters and promotional deals) from your primary email inbox that can lead to distractions at work.
The tabs put your emails “out of site and out of mind,” which can lead to forgetting about certain emails and tasks. Also, some people prefer to sort emails themselves so they feel more in control of their inbox.
