The Gmail team at Google have given its Inbox mobile app and web app a big update. The update brings three new important changes in the form of streamlined events, glanceable newsletters and saved links, that should hopefully convince a few more users to make the switch to its Inbox service.
Tapping on an event will now show you all emails related to that event at once glance. In short, the new update will help you keep track of changes (if people happen to drop out) giving users a comprehensive overview of the event in one place.
The other feature to be added with this update is the ability to view and preview newsletters all at once. Inbox will now show a condensed preview of the same in your Inbox thread and tapping upon it will reveal a card-like interface that clubs all information from your newsletters in one glance.
Last but not the least is Inbox's new ability to store and remember links inside emails. This is a welcomed feature as users will not have to share links to other apps to save them but simply tap on "Save to Inbox" instead. This can be done both from within the Inbox app inside an email or even from the other apps, thanks to the sharing extension.
You can now preview formatted pages from links in your emails without the need to leave the Inbox app. On the desktop, users can download the Inbox by Gmail Chrome extension to add links to Inbox. All of the saved links will be accessible under one thread.
Indeed, all of the above features have been introduced as time-saving ones that will also help users reduce the clutter in their inbox with minimal effort. The update is rolling out from the server side, so users will gradually see the new features appearing in the respective accounts.
