When we first heard the news about the new Google Inbox app we felt a little chill down our spine because we thought “Ok, this will be the end of our beloved Gmail”. Apparently the new Google Inbox app will not replace Gmail but is a combination between Google Now and Gmail.
The new Google Inbox app was designed to focus on the important things in the email. It’s meant to highlight important email and better arrange the important folders.
Google Inbox app is a follow-up to the changes Gmail announced last year where they tried to make things easier when dealing with many types of emails all at once.
Google explained that the new mail app will arrange all the important stuff in your email, grouping them so that one can find it easier.
“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,” Google explains.
“You can even teach Inbox to adapt to the way you work by choosing which emails you’d like to see grouped together.”
This sounds great in theory but does it actually work? Let’s have a look at the new Google Inbox app and see what important features it brings. The Inbox app highlights important information from important emails like photos, flight itineraries, events, or family documents. The new Google Inbox app can also display info that is not n the mail but it’s somehow related to the information in the message, like real-time flight status or package deliveries.
Google Inbox app works with highlights and bundles to bring the user only the most important information from an email. This will make it easier to focus on the priorities by adding “Reminders” so that the users won’t forget to do important house chores or calling the parents.
The inbox becomes something like a personal secretary, not just for emails but for other important stuff, too. Things that require keeping track of, or things that need returning to.
What do you think of the new Google Inbox app? Do you think it will replace Gmail in the near future?
