Google Launches Inbox to Reinvent Email


Google has launched Inbox, a new email service that aims to keep us organized and focused on our tasks than spending the whole day checking our messy emails.

The new email service is totally different from Gmail and displays real-time email updates to tasks, chores and appointments.

According to the firm, “Inbox highlights the key information from important messages, such as flight itineraries, event information, and photos and documents emailed to you by friends and family. Inbox will even display useful information from the web that wasn’t in the original email, such as the real-time status of your flights and package deliveries. Highlights and Bundles work together to give you just the information you need at a glance.”

Google writes in a blog post that Inbox has reminders so users can do their tasks as planned, Assists—handy pieces of information for users to get any job done. For example, if you write a Reminder to call the hardware store, Inbox will supply the store’s phone number and tell you if it’s open. Assists work for your email, too. If you make a restaurant reservation online, Inbox adds a map to your confirmation email. Book a flight online, and Inbox gives a link to check-in.
Inbox also has Snooze to allow users put off some of the tasks for sometime like we do with the alarm clock in the morning.
Google says Inbox is totaly different from Gmail and users can choose to stick to Gmail or move to Inbox.
Inbox is produced by the Gmail team.
