Three years ago, tech giant Google introduced its new Inbox app with the aim to make email experience a lot less tiring than it already is. We’ve seen the company roll out multiple updates in the past, and they are still continuing to evolve the app by now utilising it in a way to enable users to clean their inboxes in a more simplified method.
Android Police have reported that the Google Inbox app will be notifying users with suggestions that will encourage them to unsubscribe from promotional emails that have been left unread for longer than a month’s period. The app, in fact, has its own “Promos” tag which will now include an Inbox Tip in an aid to empower users to unsubscribe from email lists. However, if you decide to continue receiving the promotional emails, you can just tap “no thanks”.
At the moment, this newly added feature has only surfaced on the web version of Inbox as well as on Android smartphones. It is likely that this will only operate on emails that the app recognises as promotional email that consist of an option to unsubscribe (usually at the bottom of the email message), which basically means that the tips will probably not work for every single promo email. Google is yet to confirm if the news is official and if/when users will actually begin receiving these tips from the app.
