Gmail has rolled out some new features that will allow managing of labels much more easier than before, the new features include moving the labels to a much more convenient location, which is below your main email folders.
In addition to that you can also hide and show the labels to save space. Gmail will automatically determine which labels you use most and display it to you, however you can choose which labels to show and which labels to hide.
In addition to that users can now directly drag and drop their emails onto a label or drag a label onto a email to apply that label to it, you can also select multiple conversations while dragging and dropping.
The new features are not part of Gmail Labs, so you don’t have to change any settings, however the features will be gradually rolled out to all users throughout the day.
