The Backstage of Gmail Priority Box

The Backstage of Gmail Priority Box

Ario Jafarzadeh, Experienced Designer on the Gmail team, recently gave a talk about Priority Inbox at Google's Zrich headquarters.

“Priority inbox, for me, typifies what I hope will be a major trend in online consumption… one that gives users more control over what can draw attention against the web-based chronology that has dominated the web world. so long, ”says Ario.

Priority Inbox started as a 20 percent personal project at Google Zurich around 2008. It was initially called Magic Box, a name that was referenced in the Gmail source code last year.

But Google preferred to hide the complexity of the feature by using a simple interface that can be customized to suit your needs. The “+” / ”-” buttons that allow you to change the importance of a message were inspired by the signs of the Zurich street.

Ario says that Box priority can be improved by grouping related conversations so you can quickly handle multiple messages. just one of the many improvements that could make Gmail inbox smarter, especially for those who get a lot of messages.
