Primary: The Primary tab is for messages you’d like to see first. All messages will appear in the Primary tab, but you can swipe them into the General tab. Notifications for unread messages are turned on for the Primary tab, but you can turn them off in Settings.

General: The General tab is for messages you’d like to get back to later. Notifications for unread messages are turned off for the General tab, but you can turn them on in Settings.
