Gmail Unified Inbox Puts All Your Mail In One Place

There’s an update to Gmail this week that will allow you – on your mobile device – to push all your email into one, single inbox.

This is not the “Inbox” app, nor is it a destruction of the separate email boxes like Social, Promotions, and Updates. Instead, it’s a central place where you can get email from all of your different accounts,

Be they all Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, or whatever you happen to be using. All in one, single Inbox, that’ll forever overflow for the rest of time.

If you get as much email as I do, you probably won’t be using Gmail’s new unified inbox option. It is an option, that is to say, not something you have to opt out of.

This update allows you to, as Google suggests, “read and respond to all your messages without having to hop between accounts.”

While you have been able to forward multiple email accounts to your Gmail app before, this puts the whole lot into one SINGLE Inbox, all at once, together.

According to Google, the Gmail app for Android will be getting this update first, as early as this afternoon. Apps for other platforms may get the update soon.

The gmail app for Android also has “smarter search” now with a far quicker autocomplete.

You’ll also get Conversation View (messages replied to one another in a stack) for all accounts.
