Google launched Inbox, its new email app, using an invitation-based system back in October 2014. Folks scrambled to get invites in the following months to give Inbox a try, but if you never managed to get one, you can now give up your hunt.
Google’s Inbox by Gmail is now open to everyone, meaning that anyone can now try the email app. There are apps for both Android and iOS, but you can also try Inbox on the web at inbox.google.com. Additionally, Google is added new features to Inbox. Those include Trip Bundles, which will gather all of your emails and info related to a trip into a single box; Undo Send, Swipe to Delete, and Custom Signatures; Google Keep Reminders in Inbox; and the ability to open reservations or food orders from HotelTonight and Eat 24 directly from Inbox.
Inbox by Gmail aims to help you organize your email so that you can find what you want more quickly. For example, it’ll bundle similar emails together to make them easier to locate, like your purchases from online retailers. Inbox will also highlight important information like flight details, surface stuff like phone numbers and addresses, and snooze emails that you want to hide for a brief period of time. While Inbox isn’t for everyone, it is an interesting email app, and it’s nice to see that everyone can now try it out and see if Inbox is for them.
