Gmail unveils Smart Labels

If you’ve got a busy, hedonistic lifestyle like we have, you most likely find that your Gmail inbox is rammed full of emails, and that each morning you have to sift through a whole range of emails, most of which are of no interest. We could of course have set up loads of folders to organises everything, but we’re too lazy for that. Thankfully Google is now about to do it for us.

Google has followed up the Priority Inbox (which we find moderately useful) with Smart Labels, which takes your email and categorises it for you. It sounds super handy for the laxy among us, who just can’t be bothered with organisation at the best of times, let alone while watching the clock tick down on a drab working day. So how does it work exactly? Why not take a look at the Gmail blog, which explains all:

‘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’.’
