Earlier we wrote about Gmail “Priority Inbox” that automatically identifies your important email and separates it out from everything else. With “Priority Inbox” Gmail uses a variety of signals to identify important email, including which messages you open and which you reply to and based on the data all your incoming emails gets separated into sections: “Important and unread“, “Starred” and “Everything else“.

Priority Inbox will be rolled out to Gmail and Google App users in the coming days. Once Priority Inbox is available for your account you will see “Priority Inbox” tab in Gmail settings. Based on your needs and requirements you can either show or hide Priority Inbox in Gmail.
