Highlight Story

Leaked android screenshots have reportedly suggested that Google may be testing a new version of Gmail, to give it some new inbox-wrangling features.

The leaks reportedly revealed by Geek.com suggest that Gmail may soon get new tabs for travel, purchases and finance, to supplement the current Social, Promotional, Updates and Forums tabs that users can add alongside their default inbox.

The leaks also said that new version may include some tools for making sure that important messages do not get lost and there would apparently be a system for pinning messages to the top of ones inbox in place of the old stars, The Verge reported.

The leaked version may also reportedly include a snooze feature, that will allow a user to read an email, and then set it to be marked as unread and moved back to the top of the inbox after a set period of time.

However, this design could just be a preliminary test as usual and given the number of experimental features the search-giants have tried out over the years, these are not entirely new options, the report added.
