The Gmail app for Android allows users to choose different types of inbox. The feature, which is unique to the Google system, is ideal for people who need to change the messages that appear first in their inbox. It is possible to determine, for example, that unread emails appear first, which can help to not leave any messages lost or unanswered.
The feature also allows you to enable the priority inbox so that emails are automatically and hierarchically organized into «Important and unread», «Starred» and » All others «. See how to access and change the type of mailbox sign in to your Android account.
