I am a power user of email. I use chrome extensions, various add-ons, mobile applications, filters, labels and much more. So I was excited when #InboxfromGmail was released. I was eager to test it out. Here’s my experience with Inbox from Gmail.
What Is Inbox?
It’s not a new email service. It still is Gmail. Inbox is just a new mobile and web application.
It only works with personal Gmail accounts, and is yet not available for the business accounts. TechCrunch published an interesting post on why Gmail launched Inbox.
What’s The Difference?
First, we had the Priority Inbox where you could “star” an email or mark it as “important”.
Then came the Tabbed Inbox, in which your emails were bundled into five groups: Primary, Social, Promotions, Updates, and Forums.
Inbox goes a step further. The Inbox app makes it easy to archive the emails, or mark them for later reading, and introduces new bundles. Many actions remain same, or are similar.
