Google Priority Inbox Update

Google Updates Its Priority Inbox

After launching Priority Inbox earlier this year, Gmail is now adding a few helpful features to keep your important messages visible. According to statistics, Priority Inbox users spend 43 percent more time reading important mail compared to unimportant, and 15 percent less time reading email compared to users who don’t use the feature.

Google already shared its top-of-the-line method for deeming an email's importance based on a user's email history and starred messages. Now, a new change tells you exactly why Google added the message to your priority inbox: hovering over the importance marker (that icon that designates messages important) displays the quick reason for the message's selection.

The engineers at Google have also made Priority Inbox much faster, responding to user complaints that it took too long to learn what is important and what is not.
