How to Get New Gmail Tabs Inbox

Gmail has released the new Gmail tabs inbox which lets you sort your emails better, separating your primary inbox from emails from social media updates, email promotions, subscription alerts, and forum subscriptions. Basically it puts you in control of your Gmail inbox in a much better way than before.

Gmail has been trying to help heavy email users sort their inboxes by labels, archives, stars, and of course the Gmail priority inbox. Though all these were good attempts, this new tabbed inbox seems much better and highlights better Google’s understanding of email types, possibly based on learning from the Gmail priority inbox.
