Google has introduced a new feature for Gmail Labs called Smart Labels. It’s exactly what it sounds like – Google will help you sort certain email automatically. For now, they’ve only offered three use cases: “Notifications” that are important statements from your bank or reminders of your next appointment to see your dominatrix, “Forums” will be tagged to email specifically sent through a message board system, and “bulk” email is classified as email sent to a massive amount of people. (Such as in newsletters. Or horrible, horrible chain mails.) Smart Labels work just like real labels so they’re easily customizable if you’re afraid they’ll get in your way. Otherwise you can just turn them off. Check to see if these features work in the native version of Gmail for Android. [Google]
