How To Enable the New Gmail Tabs

Gmail has a new interface, which allows you to get your inbox organized and help keep it that way. While the new tabs are said to be rolling out to all users at the moment, they might just be in your account already, without you knowing it. Here’s how to check and enable them, if they’re already available.

Using Gmail Tabs

As you may already know, the new inbox groups your email into tabs, to keep email categories organized. You can move messages between tabs, to help it learn what you want.

Now, if you want to enable the new tabs (provided they’re already available for your account), click the gears icon on the top right side of your Gmail inbox and click Configure Inbox.
