If, for some ridiculous reason, you don’t have the easy-to-secure invite to Inbox by Gmail already you’ll be glad to know that another opportunity has opened up… but only if you act fast. Google is giving out invites to anyone who emails them by 9AM Pacific standard time at [email protected] (it has to be from a Gmail address).
Inbox, if you don’t know, is Google’s new take on email, a simplified inbox that’ll group like-items and allow you to take action on multiple emails at the same time. It’ll group travel email into the same bundle and automatically add itineraries and such to your calendar, or you can get a look at all of the email you don’t want to see (such as bill alerts) in one fell swoop.
Inbox has features for “snoozing” emails to make them reappear at a later time in case you can’t get to it right away. It’s a pretty big change at first, but many who have gotten used to it exclaim they wouldn’t dare go back to the old way
You can try Inbox without having to give up your traditional Gmail experience so if you don’t end up liking it it’s rather easy to switch back. There are apps for iOS and Android, and you should note that the web version only works in Google Chrome (though Google swears that will change eventually). In the meantime, check out the cool infographic straight ahead to see exactly how people are using Inbox to help regain control of their email.
