Gmail's labels/Tags is no less than a life-saver when it comes to efficient email management, this nifty feature has now been taken to the next level with introduction of the new inbox interface which organizes email into five optional tabs: primary, social, promotions, updates and forums. These categories make it easy to read messages of the same type all at once, and keep track of your mail more efficiently.
The new interface is highly customizable with ability to choose which tabs a user wants, supporting full drag-n-drop functionality between tabs. The new tabbed interface is also available on mobile devices when using the official native Gmail apps on Android and iOS platforms. Do watch the video shared below with instructions on how to activate and deactivate this new interface now.
Activating or deactivating the new Gmail Inbox Tabs is very easy, simply click the Settings gear icon from top-right corner and click "Configure inbox" button as shown below.
Users can now activate or deactivate the Inbox tabs they want (or don't want) from this screen as shown below.
