Gmail bug temporarily removes the option to empty spam and trash on Android (Updated)

While the concept of "inbox zero" is appealing in theory, many of us just fail to achieve it.

Gmail 'chips' now going live, helping you narrow down search results

Gmail has incredibly powerful search filters, with options to sort messages by the sender, contents, attachments, date, label, and more. However, using these filters can get a little complicated, especially if you're trying to combine several of them with AND/OR operators. Google is trying to make these operators a little friendlier with a new 'chips' feature, which automatically recommends filters under the search bar.

Gmail will be adding travel and purchases labels to the sidebar (APK Teardown)

Gmail is one of the longest lived projects to come out of Google after the success of Search. During its life, the development team has been working on countless projects to make sense of the deluge of incoming email and help users manage it. We've seen everything from smart spam filtering, intelligent interpretations of importance and priority, grouping and categorizing based on sources, and with Inbox, even things like smart bundling. The latest update appears to be surfacing a couple of those automatically detected email types so you don't have to remember any hidden tricks to use.
