Yesterday, Google announced the expansion of Gmail’s Priority Inbox feature to its mobile website. Users accessing gmail.com from their HTML5-capable smartphone browser can now view messages categorized by Gmail as both “important” and “everything else.” Currently, users must enable Priority Inbox on the desktop version of Gmail to be able to view it on their mobile — only viewing is supported, users can not yet rank messages from the mobile web version. Priority Inbox is supported in Android 1.5+, iOS 3.0+, and most other HTML5-capable smartphones. More →
Today, Google released an update to its Gmail Android application that offers several bug fixes, improvements, and feature additions. Most notably, the new bits add enhanced priority inbox support, an improved compose workflow, and in-line rely responses. With priority inbox support, users can now see importance markers in the main message list and rank messages right from their device. The new compose feature will allow users to switch between reply, reply all, and forward while in the composition screen, as well as set the outgoing account (should users have more than one Gmail account setup on their device). In-line message replies are fairly self explanatory. The new Gmail application — version 2.3.2 — is available in the Market as we type. Enjoy.
Last night, Google announced the addition of a Priority Inbox to its Gmail email service. As Google explains:
Priority Inbox splits your inbox into three sections: “Important and unread,” “Starred” and “Everything else.” As messages come in, Gmail automatically flags some of them as important. Gmail uses a variety of signals to predict which messages are important, including the people you email most (if you email Bob a lot, a message from Bob is probably important) and which messages you open and reply to (these are likely more important than the ones you skip over). And as you use Gmail, it will get better at categorizing messages for you.
The new feature has been rolling out to Gmail users since late last night. If you see “New! Priority Inbox” in the top right-hand corner of your Gmail window, you’ve got the new feature.
