How Gmail will track packages

Gmail users can opt in to receive package tracking updates right from their inbox or in Gmail settings. Gmail will then automatically look up order statuses using their tracking numbers and show them in the inbox.

In case you do not want to get the package tracking update, you can opt out at any time through your Gmail settings.

Also, in the coming months, Gmail will proactively show a delay label and bring the email to the top of your inbox so that you don't miss a beat (or a package).
