Google Adds Smart Labels to Gmail Labs

Google has your back in the battle to keep incoming email organized. Yesterday, Google Software Engineer Stanley Chen, announced smart labels on the 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.”

Chen goes on to say that if you’re already using filters and labels to keep track of your email you’ll likely find that smart labels can replace some of the labels you’re already using. Smart labels show up like all your other labels and can be edited and deleted in the same way.

Smart labels are available immediately to all Gmail users just go into your labs and enable them to get the ball rolling.
