Google Introduces ‘Inbox’ For iOS & Android To Manage Your Emails [Video]

Google just announced a new app/service called ‘Inbox’, designed to focus on what really matters when it comes to emails. The app is from the same people behind Gmail so you know it should be good stuff.

Today, we’re introducing something new. It’s called Inbox. Years in the making, Inbox is by the same people who brought you Gmail, but it’s not Gmail: it’s a completely different type of inbox, designed to focus on what really matters.

Your email inbox should help you live and work better, but instead it often buries the important stuff and creates more stress than it relieves. Inbox, built by the Gmail team, keeps things organized and helps you get back to what matters.

BUNDLES – Similar messages are bundled together so you can deal with them all at once. And get rid of them with one tap.
HIGHLIGHTS – Get the most important information without even opening the message. Check-in for flights, see shipping information for purchases, and view photos from friends right up front.
REMINDERS: More than mail, you can add Reminders so your inbox contains all the things you need to get back to.
SNOOZE: Snooze emails and Reminders to come back when you are ready to deal with them: next week, when you get home, or whenever you choose.
SEARCH: Inbox helps you find exactly what you’re looking for— from your upcoming flight to a friend’s address— without having to dig through messages.
WORKS WITH GMAIL: Inbox is built by the Gmail team, so all your messages from Gmail are here, along with the reliability and spam protection of Gmail. All of your messages are still in Gmail and always will be.

You can find ‘Inbox by Gmail’ in the iTunes store and Play Store but note that you need an invite in order to use the app. Google is currently sending out the first round of invitations to give Inbox a try, and each new user will be able to invite their friends. If Inbox can’t arrive soon enough for you, you can email them at inbox@google.com to get an invitation as soon as more become available.
