Gmail Has a New Inbox

Google just announced a new inbox for Gmail, which you can already use on both the desktop and mobile (apps):

the new inbox groups your mail into categories which appear as different tabs

Another Google design decision I cannot understand. The tabs are costing expensive screen estate and do not add more value than the smart labels that were already working.

I tried it and removed it again. I think it is because I don’t have enough pixels on my screen.
