As Google revolutionized the world with Gmail, they claim to be ready to do it once again with Inbox, a new service launching now.
E-mails have long ago stopped being exciting to become more of a chore, especially if you use them for both work & personal stuff. That is why Google, well aware of what a mess most of our inboxes are (and they should be, they host most of them!), are introducing a new service called simply Inbox.
Inbox is, according to the Google team, a different type of inbox with a “focus on what really matters”. The idea is that we get so many e-mails a day that inbox will cleverly sort them out so we don’t have to. Inbox works expanding on the Gmail categories introduced last year and bundling e-mails in groups, while providing highlights from important e-mails at a glance. Say, if you have a travel itinerary e-mailed to you, only the relevant information will be displayed with none of the fluff.
Inbox will, as well, become a personal organizer of sorts with configurable reminders for everyday tasks: from working out to picking your laundry or calling your parents. All these things you can sort of already do with different apps, but Inbox aims to be a centralized resource for things and save you valuable time you can spend doing whatever else. Will it work? Well, how about you tell us? Sign up for the beta by asking for an invitation at [email protected].
