GTFO: Five years on, Google finally adds drag and drop to Gmail

Miracles do happen: Google has finally added the ability to drag and drop emails into folders/ labels some five years after launching the service.

The drag and drop feature means that Gmail has come into the 21st 20th century by offering a feature many all its competitors offer. Being Google though the feature isn’t a straight forward as it seems, as emails can only be dragged from the left hand side.

Google also announced that labels have been moved from a separate box to the inbox/ sent menu list. Most label’s will also now be automatically hidden, with only commonly used labels appearing.

Be it five years too late, the announcement is great news for Gmail fans.
