Google has released a new feature named “Priority Inbox” for Gmail. By using this new feature, you can organise your current and future emails in such a way that you will never miss or lose any important communication. As we know, Gmail’s spam filtering is one of the best in industry but apart from Spam, we also get lot many unwanted or unrelated emails in our inbox. Because of those emails, sometimes we lose an important communication as well. To avoid this loss, we currently use filter option but Priority Inbox is the next step of email filtering. It really makes life much easier by providing more organized and prioritized list of emails.
