Inbox by Gmail, launched in its beta iteration back in October last year, was Google’s attempt to re-think email, helping users keep things more organized. An invite was necessary to enable access to Inbox, and while invitations were fairly easy to come by, it is no longer a requirement from today. Along with Inbox by Gmail now being open to everyone, there are a slew of new features added to the mix as well, making the experience smarter and even simpler to use.
One of the best features of Inbox is the ability to see important information at a glance, with direct access to things like tracking packages, performing web check-ins for flights, and more, from the app making things very easy. Google has further refined this feature with Trip Bundles, with all the key details, such as flight timing and reservation information, seen as soon as you open the app.
More controls have been added as well, with Undo Send now making its way to mobile, that allows you to take back an email right after sending it, very helping if you’ve second thoughts. Directly deleting an email is also available as a default swipe option now, instead of simply marking it is as Done. Finally, you know have the option to set custom signatures to help personalize your emails.
This version of Inbox is also bringing more integration across the board. For example, if you create a Reminder using Google Keep, it will also show up in Inbox. If you are emailed a to-do, Inbox will suggest adding a reminder, and when you get an email from HotelTonight or Eat24, you can now open your reservations and food orders within their app, directly from Inbox.
As mentioned, Inbox by Gmail is now available for everyone, and can be downloaded from the Google Play Store here.
