    We want to tap on "Inbox sound & vibrate"
    .
    This option is only for the Primary inbox. Under "Inbox categories", we can see 3 categories, "Primary", "Social" and "Promotions". We can edit the notification options for these other categories in another section. Gmail actually calls them 'labels' which can be confusing, because they call them 'categories' in this section.
