Google Gives Gmail Smart Labels

By  |  Wednesday, March 9, 2011 at 8:00 pm

When I first tried the clutterbusting Gmail feature known as Priority Inbox last August, I wasn’t sure what to think of it. It took a couple of months of patient use, but I got hooked. And now Google is introducing a related feature called Smart Labels, which automatically figures out if particular messages are bulk mailings, forum missives, or notifications. As TechCrunch’s Jason Kincaid notes, Hotmail introduced something similar months ago–but it’s still good to see it land in Gmail. (It’s currently a Labs feature, which means you’ll need to enable it.)
