Google has recently released a new app called ‘Inbox by Gmail’ which is a modern take on Google’s now ancient Gmail. The Inbox by Gmail app has been developed by the same team which was behind Gmail. The Google Inbox app re-imagines Gmail and is built for the mobile first generation. It is available both on Android and iOS.
Inbox by Gmail is a mishmash of Gmail labels, Google Now and Mailbox. You will find a few features borrowed from each of them. Inbox by Gmail app bundles similar email under different labels like Travel, Purchases, Updates, Finance, Social, Forums and Promos. You can also create your own bundles. You can swipe right on an email to mark it done and swipe left on an email to snooze it. The app also provides you with real-time status of your flights and package deliveries akin to Google Now. It also borrows various other Google Now features.
