Inbox gets a new update, adds a few minor changes

Despite being so new, Inbox by Gmail is now rolling out an update to version 1.1.

Inbox by Gmail 1

Inbox is just barely out the gate, and invite-only to boot, but that’s not stopping Google from introducing its first update. As you would expect, this isn’t a massive update, though there are a few minor changes, including one that’s specific to Android 5.0 Lollipop. For those of you rocking Lollipop (preview or otherwise), Inbox now blends the color of the action bar into the status bar.

Aside from this, some of the other changes include:

  • Slide-out menu now covers action bar, giving more screen real-estate
  • You can automatically scroll through email addresses by swiping on upper section of menu
  • There may likely be a few other changes under the hood as well, such as bug fixes

In Google’s usual fashion, we can expect Inbox 1.1 to rollout in the course of the next few days (or even weeks). For those that don’t want to wait any longer than they have to, you can download the APK here for manual installation.Of course those without invites will still need an invitation, like always.

If you have already downloaded Inbox 1.1, let us know if you ran into any other changes or improvements, via the comments below.
