Google has announced that the Gmail application is updated with “high priority” notifications, which are based on Artificial Intelligence .
In its official blog , the company announced that this novelty will first reach the Gmail application for iOS , although soon it will also make its Android debut. As explained by the company, this new feature follows a series of updates that the company has been making of its main mail application for several months.
