Inbox finally supports Android Wear, lets you reply to emails straight from your wrist


Inbox by Gmail promo hero

We’re not sure how this managed to slip by the Inbox team the first couple of updates, but given that Android Wear is kind of a big thing for Google, it only makes sense that their app should play well with their new wearable OS. Well, now it finally does.

In a new update hitting the Google Play Store, Inbox by Gmail now fully supports your Android Wear devices, and just like that, has become my default email app once again.

While technically all Android notifications support Android Wear devices, they wont display properly or give you a complete set of actions on your wearable. With the latest update, you can now read entire email messages, mark as “done” or reply with a voice message.

Tablet users will also find an “improved” tablet experience, while everyone gets to enjoy suggestions that appear as you type out a Reminder. You’ll find the update waiting for you right now in the Google Play Store.
