Check your email: first wave of Inbox by Gmail invites are going out now


Inbox by Gmail promo hero

Yesterday we told you guys about Inbox by Gmail, Google’s new app that looks to make sense out of electronic mail by infusing it with Google Now-like functionality. More of a productivity app, it wasn’t available to the public, requiring would-be users send an email in order to receive an invite.

Inbox invite email

Well, for anyone who sent one off, Google is now notifying early adopters that that they can now sign into the app using their standard Gmail account login. Pretty much everyone who we’ve talked to that requested an invite yesterday has received theirs, so it’s looking like a pretty big first batch of invites are being sent out.

Anyone who emailed Inbox yesterday not receive their invite yet?

    Anyone know anything about getting invites to give out?

    And just think, some of the same people who chided OnePlus will no doubt be asking for invites for this……..

    1. The site says you hit the red plus button and select “send invite.” Hope that helped. If so I’d take an invite as a reward…

      1. THX, I’ll check it out……

      2. Didn’t see the “send invite” pop-up.
        Must be too soon….. .

    2. Saw something about it taking 1-2 days before you can send out invites.

    1. If possible; could you send an invite @ [email protected] if you have a spare

  31. Total side note, am I the only one that has difficulty with Phandroid’s app. I’m using a Nexus 5 & 7, when I try to open the comments, it crashes. (Currently) it’s my 7 that will NOT open this. It’s just odd since this app is the last one I’d suspect of incomparability and it happens regularly. Sorry, carry on.

  39. “Pretty much everyone” got their invite?

  44. I did not get an invite yet. And I sent in a request right away.

  45. Please, invite me on [email protected]. Thanks

  46. Got my invite, installed it and used it on PC via Chrome and on my Jellybean Android phone. Kinda weird. Hard to get used to. New paradigm shift. kinda like going from old Yahoo Mail to Old “beta” Gmail (archiving instead of deleting, etc.)

  47. All requesting invites. Email. Google at [email protected]

  48. What has two thumbs and no invite yet?

    This guy.

  49. please, need a invite

  50. I sent request 2 days ago and still waiting… if someone feels nice send one my way. :)

  51. Don’t bother, you’re not missing much. Ugly UI, Chrome only, lacks polish. Got one and was bored within two seconds and uninstalled within 5 seconds.

    Just another tech company trying to fix something that isn’t broken and making things more complex in the process.

    1. I’m sorry, but by saying you u installed it within 5 second just makes you seem stupid. You can’t truly judge an app (or anything for that matter) after 5 seconds.

  52. Still haven’t gotten mine.

  53. got a couple invites….shoot me your email

    1. [email protected], please send an invite, thanks
