By leveraging Google's machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities, Gmail can now identify the messages that are most important to you.

Designed for the iPhone and all iPad models, Gmail can be downloaded now on the App Store for free. This may happen over time, but the goal of course, is to send you push notifications for those emails it believes are important to you.

While Gmail does its best to cut down on the amount of spam emails that hit your account every day, it still feels it can do even more to cut down on those unimportant emails.

Mobile email notifications are a great way of reminding you to unsubscribe from dozens of annoying promotional lists. It will also arrive on Android devices sometime in the future. This Modern feature takes advantage of machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to recognize messages that the user would want to read first. The alert says "Try notifications for only your high priority emails" and gives you the option to "Turn on" the feature or opt out with "No Thanks". Google plans on getting other features from that applications as well. Google is trying to find a happy medium between letting all of the notifications through and silencing them entirely by rolling out high-priority notifications in Gmail for iOS.

Like we mentioned above, this not the only new feature which has shown up on Gmail since the past few weeks. It has already been there with the company's other email app called Inbox since a year ago and is also present in Gmail's web interface. The new Gmail offers the ability to snooze certain emails.
