Inbox by Gmail

Google's all new Inbox by Gmail service

Through a Blog post, Google has announced a new email app. Called the 'Inbox' by Gmail, Inbox is a separate app developed by the team of Gmail.

Inbox is said to be in development for years by the Gmail team, but it was never meant to be an update, and was always meant to be a separate app.

Google announces Inbox by Gmail

The Inbox app introduces a new way to keep track of your emails, and helps you sort out between important emails and the spam, and also helps you out by highlighting the most important emails to you, and sorting emails out to help you keep it all organized and easy, basically expanding on the 'tabs' we see in Gmail.

The Inbox introduces new ways to get your email, which are a nice change to what we see in Gmail for years. 

Here are the new features that Inbox brings with it:

The 'Bundles' basically expands on the 'tabs' we've seen in Gmail. Introducing better categorization and organizing, it helps you by making it easy to deal with similar emails of one type at once. An example given, all your purchase receipts or bank statements will be neatly grouped together, allowing you to quickly review them and simply swipe them out of the way. 

You can even teach Inbox your own method, by choosing which emails you would like to see grouped together, helping you bring in more organization to it.

The Inbox app highlights the key information from your messages that it finds important, such as flight itineraries, event information, photos and documents emailed to you by friends and family(which makes it important). The app will display useful information that it will gather from the web that wasn't even in the original email, such as real-time status of your flights and package deliveries.

Highlights and Bundles have a close relationship, as they both work together to give you a quick glance at the information the app feels you need.

Reminders, Assists, and Snooze: 
Dubbed 'your to-do’s on your own terms', the 'Reminders, Assists and Snooze' feature will make it easy to focus on your priorities by letting you add reminders, such as reminders on what to do on your daily basis such as when you need to make an important call or do an important task.

After the 'Reminders' feature, comes the 'Assists'. The Assists will help you make it easier to do the tasks that you put as your reminders. Such as, if you made a reminder to call a hardware store, the Inbox app's Assist feature will supply you the store's phone number, as well as also tell you if it's open or closed, making it easier for your task to be done.

Assists also work for your email. An example given, if you make a restaurant reservation online, the Inbox app will add a map to your confirmation email. If you book a flight online, Inbox will givw you a link to check-in. 

Now enters the 'Snooze'. Snooze lets you snooze away emails and reminders, allowing you to set a time for the reminder or email to come back at you, or even a specific location for it to alert you when you're in the location, such as your home or office, or any other location.

Inbox by Gmail in action

Inbox is only up for invitations currently, and in order to get your invitation for the app, you need to sign up for the first round of invitations that are rolling out. The ones selected will also be able to invite their friends into the service. 

You can get your invitation by sending an email at, or you can just ask a friend who gets invited in, or wait for the application to get released for everyone. Although it isn't officially said, it is personally recommended by me that you send the invitation email from your Gmail account that you want to link with Inbox.

Gmail will not be getting shut down, and Inbox will introduce a new experience for you, while you can simply just continue your Gmail experience as well.
