Soon after the new Gmail Inbox push, Google started rolling out a new set of advertisements that look almost like emails. But the good news is, you can disable them. (I am not against ads on the web btw).
How to Disable New Gmail Ads
These ads show up only in the “Promotions” tab. So the trick here is to disable the promotions tab in Gmail. You don’t have to worry if you have already disabled the new Gmail inbox.
- Click the Settings icon in the top right corner of the Gmail tab.
- Select “Configure Inbox.”
- Deselect the “Promotions” tab and click Save.
Easy! But you do not have much choice if you want to keep the Promotions tab.
