Google Launches New ‘Inbox’ Feature for Their Email Service

Google Inc launched an email service called ‘Inbox’ on Wednesday that will better organize emails and display information such as appointments, flight bookings and package deliveries in a more user-friendly way.

Google said it was sending out invitations to selected Gmail users to try out the new service. Users can also email the company at inbox@cybernewsalerts to get an invitation.

Google has sent out a message saying, “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, built to fit your life. Come try it with us.”
Invites for Google Inbox

“Come try it with us”, says the voice claiming to be ‘Your Friends at Gmail. But for trying this new Gmail Inbox application, Google has resorted to the same tactics that it did when it first launched Gmail in 2004 – that is, it was only available on invite. Google has maintained this exclusivity for its new Inbox. It says, “We’re 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 us at inbox@google.com to get an invitation as soon as more become available.”

So what is Google Inbox like?

Google’s Sundar Pichai, SVP, Android, Chrome & Apps, has explained the features of Google Inbox in a blog post as follows:

“Bundles: stay organized automatically

Inbox expands upon the categories we introduced in Gmail last year, making it easy to deal with similar types of mail all at once. For example, all your purchase receipts or bank statements are neatly grouped together so that you can quickly review and then swipe them out of the way. You can even teach Inbox to adapt to the way you work by choosing which emails you’d like to see grouped together.

Highlights: the important info at a glance

Inbox highlights the key information from important messages, such as flight itineraries, event information, and photos and documents emailed to you by friends and family. Inbox will even display useful information from the web that wasn’t in the original email, such as the real-time status of your flights and package deliveries. Highlights and Bundles work together to give you just the information you need at a glance.

Reminders, Assists, and Snooze: your to-do’s on your own terms

Inbox makes it easy to focus on your priorities by letting you add your own Reminders, from picking up the dry cleaning to giving your parents a call. No matter what you need to remember, your inbox becomes a centralized place to keep track of the things you need to get back to.”
