Google bringing Inbox to a select number of Google Apps users in March
We’ve been a pretty big fan of Inbox by Gmail since its launch back in October, but the one big gripe we’ve all had is that Google Apps users don’t have access to the service. So when Sundar Pichai took to Twitter to announce that Inbox would come to Google Apps users “imminently”, we were very happy. However, we had no idea how long “imminently” would take. But in a blog post earlier today, Google announced that Inbox would roll out to select Google Apps users beginning in March.
Just like the initial Inbox rollout, Google is taking the Apps rollout slowly. It won’t be available to everyone right away, and your Google Apps administrator needs to sign up for your business. If you’re interested in getting your team on-board, have your Google Apps admin send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to request an invite. Unfortunately, the number of businesses accepted to test the service will be very limited so Google can work with each team closely. To find out more information on signing up for the service, head to Google’s Inbox support page.
Inbox wasn’t created to reinvent email, Inbox was created to help you reinvent the way you get things done. This means we need to understand more about how things get done (or don’t) today. And with your feedback, who knows, we could reinvent the way people work.
Much of the time, work email is very time-sensitive and important to read right away. The last thing we want is to have important emails slip through the cracks, or for the service to be buggy and unusable. It might be a bummer that we can’t all use Inbox with Google Apps quite yet, but it’s great that they’re taking the necessary precautions to ensure the service works properly.
