Gmail tabs

In 2014, Google introduced the option of separating the inbox into five tabbed sections. In addition to the Primary tab, users can select any or all of the Social, Promotions, Updates and Forums tabs. Google's algorithms determine which tab is appropriate to store each message. See Gmail.



Gmail

(Google MAIL) Google's free Web-based email service, which is supported by text advertising similar to Google's Web search. Launched in 2004, Gmail offers 15GB of mailbox storage, allowing users to keep their mail on Google servers indefinitely for future reference. Gmail provides sophisticated searching of message content and keeps message threads for easy review. In 2006, Google's instant messaging was integrated into Gmail but was discontinued in 2015 (see Google Talk).

Gmail is included in the subscriber-based G Suite service but without advertising. See G Suite, Gmail Tap, Gmail labels, Gmail tabs and Google.
