GMail Experimenting New Visual Promotions

I am sure that you guys are already familiar with the “tabs” feature of GMail inbox. GMail provided this feature over a year ago to make the categorization of your emails easier for you.

As you know that promotional email has got loads of images; images of awesome shoes, gym stuff, clothes and all the other fancy stuff that you are interested in. But as you know that those images get buried in your messages and since all you see is a subject line, it can be a challenge for you to find them quickly.

To cater to this problem, GMail is soon bringing out “Promotions Tab”– another addition to your GMail inbox. This will help you see those promotional images in a more visual way! Promotions Tab will bring a new grid view to the top of your inbox key images from deals, offers, and other marketing emails if you have the Promotions tab enabled.


Grid view also comes with infinite scrolling, making it easy to quickly scan through your messages and find the ones that look interesting. Remember, it’s still in trial period.

GMail officials say:

We’re just experimenting for now, but we hope this view will make it a little bit easier for you to get things done. Sign up at and if you’re selected, we’ll follow up for your feedback!
