The Gmail team’s Inbox mobile email client, which was born out of Google’s 2012 acquisition of the popular iPhone email app Sparrow, is about to get a whole lot smarter with a new feature called Smart Reply, the company announced on the Gmail blog Tuesday.
The feature analyzes your emails and uses machine learning to recognize emails that need responses and then generates the natural language responses on the fly.
Inbox, a gesture-driven email app for the iPhone and iPad by the Gmail team which was born out of Google’s acquisition of Sparrow, was updated on the App Store today with enhanced snooze options for package tracking updates, restaurant and event reservations, calendar invites and a couple other types of emails.
The feature makes it easy to snooze an email message to the day before the event, knowing your email will come back at just the right time. These enhanced snoozing capability is in addition to custom snooze times which were introduced back in March.
Inbox, a gesture driven email application from the Gmail team built on Google-acquired Sparrow technology, got refreshed with new features this morning starting with Undo Send. Now, Undo Send has been available for quite some time through Gmail’s web interface.
Now for the first time on your iPhone, Undo Send lets you take back an email right after sending in case you spotted a mistake, or have second thoughts. Also important, Inbox is now open to everyone so all Gmail fans can get in on the action right away.
Inbox, a gesture-heavy, sleek looking email client for the iPhone by the Gmail team born out of Google’s acquisition of the Sparrow app, is getting new features later today.
Among them: custom snooze times for your messages. Normally, Inbox lets you snooze messages you don’t necessarily need to act right now using its built-in snooze options: Evening, Tomorrow, Next Week and Someday.
But sometimes a message wants to be snoozed until a specific date and time. This is now possible thanks to new features letting you customize your morning, afternoon and evening Snooze times in Inbox, Google said Tuesday. This new feature, along with other enhancements listed further below, is rolling out to Inbox later today.
A month ago, Google launched a new iPhone app called Inbox, a different take on email which uses Sparrow-like gestures to help you achieve Inbox Zero nirvana and surface the most relevant items that tend to get lost in an avalanche of unwanted emails users get bombarded with.
Available on iOS, Android and Chrome, Inbox leaves fans of Apple’s Safari browser in the dark. It’s fortunate that there’s a quick workaround to that, let me show you how.
