When it gets to a point where thirty to fifty e-mails a day are normal, Gmail labels can become a life-saver. Today, Google is giving the long time Gmail feature a small makeover in the form of a new drop down menu and some new filters.
The new look is indeed “spiffed up,” as Google says, but the new filters are what’s really important. Along with the “Hide read labels” and “Hide Labels from Subjects” Labs being added to Gmail, are some new ways in which they work. From here on out, you’ll be able to hide labels individually — something some users have been asking for.
To change your label settings, visit the Labels tab in the settings now.
