Google Tests Some Inbox Features on Gmail for Android
Last September, Google announced the closure of the Inbox platform. During all this time the service was then used by Google developers as a real incubator of ideas for Gmail and, despite the initial perplexities, it was still appreciated by many users who even preferred it to the classic service e-mail offered by Google itself.
Now for Google, it seems that the time has come to integrate, as promised, additional features of Inbox within Gmail so much so that the company would start testing core features, such as bundles and reminders, in a new version of the Gmail app for Android.
These rumours come from a screenshot appeared on Reddit inherent to an internal build of a renewed version of Gmail for Android.
The image shows how the application will integrate bundles, a function that can organize and group similar emails under one group, and perhaps reminders. This last function, always in the case where the image will prove to be real, should allow users to quickly create and schedule tasks.
Google would then also introduce the possibility to show in the email feed only the elements “set at the top” and the function that allows users to quickly mark all messages as read.
According to Reddit, there is still a lot of work to do, so it is likely that you will have to wait a long time before you can get your hands on this new version of Gmail.
