Inbox by Gmail: Saving time with Snooze

Category: Gmail | Feb 26, 2016

Posted by Michael Landry, Software Engineer

Snoozing emails is great because it helps you focus on what you need to do now instead of what you can put off until later. Starting today, Snooze is getting a new look and two time-saving improvements — all based on your feedback.

First, Snooze is getting two highly-requested snooze times: Later this week and This weekend. These new options should hopefully save you some time, and decrease the need to use custom snooze.

Snooze’s new look
Second, just like you can set your preferred morning time to receive emails, you can now choose the weekend days that work best for you.

New weekend setting
This feature is especially useful for people living who live in places where the weekend spans different days of the week.

Look for these new options in Inbox over the next week. And don’t forget to continue sharing your feedback, so we can keep working on your top requests. Enjoy your snoozing :)

Productivity at your fingertips with rich text formatting and instant RSVPs

Category: Gmail | Feb 24, 2016

Posted by Matthew Izatt, Product Manager

These days, more than two-thirds of all Gmail users check email with their phones, so having a really amazing mobile experience is more important than ever. That’s why today, we’re introducing two new Android features to help you manage your inbox on the go: rich text formatting and instant RSVPs.

Rich Text Formatting
Now you can add bold, italic, underlined, colored and highlighted text to your email—all from inside the mobile app. These new options are great for making a point or emphasizing what’s important.

Instant RSVPs
If you use Google Calendar or Microsoft Exchange, calendar invitations now include a one-tap option to show your schedule and respond. No more opening up separate apps just to see if you can squeeze in a meeting.

Gmailify: The best of Gmail, without an @gmail address

Category: Gmail | Feb 17, 2016

Posted by Michael Käser, Software Engineer

For the last year, you’ve been able to access your email from other providers, like Yahoo! Mail or Outlook.com, in the Gmail app on Android. And we’ve been getting lots of great feedback from those of you that do. Many of you would like more of Gmail’s powerful features, like spam protection and inbox organization, on these accounts—but don’t want to go through the hassle of changing your email address.

We agree. So starting today, if you use Yahoo! Mail or Hotmail/Outlook.com, you now have the option to Gmailify your inbox.

Gmailify links your existing account to Gmail so that you get all the bells and whistles—spam protection, inbox organization and even Google Now cards based on your mail—without having to leave your current address behind.

All you need to do is open the Gmail app, sign in to your email account(s), and enable Gmailify. And of course, you’re always in control—so if you ever change your mind, you can unlink your account(s) at any time, and continue to access them through the Gmail app without using Gmailify.
We’re really excited to bring the best of Gmail to more people, and we’re planning to add other email providers to Gmailify in the future.
