If you are tired of manually organizing your email, Microsoft has your back. The software giant has begun testing a new feature called Focused Inbox for Windows 10’s Mail app. As you might have guessed by now, the feature puts more important emails front-and-center.

According to MSPoweruser, which shared some screenshots of the new feature, several of its readers are now seeing  Focused Inbox functionality on their PCs. The limited testing is now live on the mainstream build of Windows 10 as well as the Insider program.

Redmond first rolled out the feature to the Android and iOS platforms. In the not so distant past, Microsoft promised Outlook.com users they would begin to see the Focused Inbox feature in Windows 10 Mail by February. The goal is to highlight messages that are more important by cutting out newsletters and promotional email blasts and consigning them to the “Other” section. Focused Inbox also works to understand how you move emails between the Focused and Other inboxes.

It is not clear when Microsoft plans to release the feature to every Mail user. It is possible that the feature will launch as part of the Windows 10 Creators Update in April. As well as Windows 10, the new feature also comes to  Outlook.com, Windows 10 Mobile, Office 365 online, and Office 365 subscribers.

Microsoft said it plans to complete the web version of the feature by May of this year. Some Windows 10 Mobile users can also expect to see the Focused Inbox in April, though it is not clear when Microsoft would be able to complete the mobile rollout. It is also not clear at the moment when and if Microsoft plans to release the Focused Inbox to Outlook 2016 for Windows and to Windows 10 home users.
