You might have already got a new alert in Gmail if you have signed in at least once from yesterday onwards. Google has enhanced the Label feature of Gmail yesterday.

Following are some of the new features in Gmail Labels:

  1. New location for labels
    You’ll notice your labels in a new location on the left of your inbox (or on the right, for those of you using the Arabic, Hebrew, or Urdu versions of Gmail). Instead of having their own section, your labels are now above your chat list, grouped together with Inbox, Drafts, Chats and other system labels.
  2. Label hiding and showing
    You now have control over which of your labels show. We’ve done our best to get you started by automatically showing the labels you use most and hiding the rest. Label hiding is my favorite new feature, since it saves me from having to look through labels I rarely use. If I ever need to reach any of my old labels, I just click the “more” link.
  3. Drag and drop
    You can now drag messages into labels, just like you can with folders. This does the exact same thing as “Move to” — it labels and archives in one step.
