Gmail for Android gains new option to change Inbox type

Gmail for Android gains new option to change Inbox type
The option to change Inbox type is very important for those who receive lots of emails daily, but for some reason, Android users weren't given too many options in regards with the type of their inbox, even though iOS and web already had these features for quite some time.

Well, that's not the case any longer, as Google has just announced that it is bringing the option to set your Inbox type directly from your phone. These options will allow Gmail for Android users to sort their inboxes, including unread first, important first, starred first, and priority inbox.

Thanks to the latest update, Gmail users will now be able to see the same email configuration they have selected on the web in their Android apps. On top of that, there's a new option that allows them to change their inbox type directly from the Gmail app for Android, which can be found under Settings / Inbox type.

Keep in mind that since this is a gradual roll-out it may take at least 15 days for the new feature to become visible on some Android devices, so be patient if you don't see the option yet.

They still need to add the option to move around buttons in the interface. Taking Move off the shortlist made me completely abandon their app.
