Gmail in New Avatar : Coming Soon

Google  announced a new inbox for Gmail, the company's email service used by over 400 million people worldwide. In a post on its official blog the company said that the new inbox would help users sort their emails better and focus on the communication that mattered to them.When I first used this feature it is really amazing because your email look much more cleaner when promotional mail from advertiser and networking site get clubbed in different tab.The (new) desktop, Android and iOS versions will become available within the next few weeks. If you'd like to try out the new inbox on desktop sooner, keep an eye on the gear menu and select Configure inbox when it appears in the settings options.

The new inbox, which will be rolled out to users in the coming weeks, will sort mails under five different tabs by default that is PRIMARY ,SOCIAL,PROMOTION,UPDATES,FOURUM .The primary tab, which will be visible to the user when he logs into Gmail, will be for the genuine and important communication. Email notifications sent by social media sites will automatically go under the Social tab and emails sent by e-commerce sites like eBay or Amazon will go under the Promotions tab. The two others tabs deal with confirmation emails and messages from mailing lists.This will surely minimize the user role in email filter
In other way, the new feature is similar to Labels and Filters that users can create within Gmail to sort emails.
However, the tabbed inbox automates the whole process and makes it easier, especially for less-technology savvy users, to sort and prioritize emails in a better way. By putting tabs on top of the inbox it also makes easier for users to access the emails that have skipped the main inbox.
There is lot more easy task of  selecting the tabs you want from all five to none, drag-and-drop to move messages between tabs.Google said that users who don't like the new inbox would have the option to go back to classic inbox.
