Gmail Introduces Smart Labels

You Are Here

Gmail always provides great tools for its users to better manage and organize their inbox. There are filters, labels and more recent priority inbox. This time Gmail introduces a new tool, it is called “Smart Labels“. Smart Labels adds filters to your incoming email based on their type – Bulk, Notification, or Forum.

As per official Gmail Blog

Today, we’re launching a complementary feature in Gmail Labs called Smart Labels, which helps you classify and organize your email. Once you turn it on from the Labs tab in Settings, Smart Labels automatically categorizes incoming Bulk, Notification and Forum messages, and labels them as such. “Bulk” mail includes any kind of mass mailing (such as newsletters and promotional email) and gets filtered out of your inbox by default (where you can easily read it later), “Notifications” are messages sent to you directly (like account statements and receipts), and email from group mailing lists gets labeled as “Forums.”

The purpose of these tools is reduce the clutter and help you to concentrate on the emails that actually need reading. No configuration is required to use “Smart Labels.” You can activate Smart Labels from the Labs tab in Settings where it is listed as ‘SmartLabels’. Do give this new feature a try and let us know your experience with it.

  • Ahh… Haven’t heard about this change before. Sounds pretty slick so I can quickly filter and remove old Facebook notifications or when forums notify me of a thread I subscribed.
    Going to enable it now in Labs settings and play around with it. Cheers

  • Yeah Michael, it’s really good feature by gmail and I am also using it 🙂
