According to Google the people behind Gmail have worked on the project for years. We get more and more mail, Google writes, and the important information is hidden in the messages and users must make an effort to retrieve the relevant information.
With Inbox this changes. The service combines emails with the same information, something we’re already familiar with in Gmail. However, in Inbox Google refined this feature. For example, users can group their banking and transactional emails. With just one click, groups can be managed. The e-mail program will become a lot clearer, says Google.
Important Information about Google’s new Inbox client
One of the most important features in Inbox is the fact that it shows the most important information in an email instantly. Furthermore, the program also keeps track of tasks the user still has to perform, for example, the check-in for a flight. To avoid providing this information in bulk batches, algorithms (yes, of course, it’s Google after all) determine which information is most important and this gets a priority status and shows up prominently in Inbox.
Inbox makes it easy to focus on priorities by letting you add your own Reminders, from picking up the dry cleaning to giving your parents a call. No matter what you need to remember, your inbox becomes a centralized place to keep track of the things you need to get back to. Basically this has the potential of a crossover between Evernote, Google Calendar and a CRM.
It’s possible to pause the program put, so you don’t get flooded with notifications. Pausing might come in handy if you do not want to be interrupted by your smartphone vibrating in your pocket every five minutes.
