Google Inbox is now open to all, plus new features added
Google today announced that Inbox, the Gmail-based mobile email client, is now open to all.
Until today, you still needed an invitation to use the service, though invites have long been pretty easy to come by.
Google says it will also open up Inbox to all Google for Works customers (whose admins enable this feature for them) through the early-adopter program starting today. (I don't see it in my console yet, but assume the option will be there shortly. Ping +MaAnna Stephenson

New Inbox features:♨ Trip Bundles
Inbox now automatically groups all the messages about a trip into a single bundle, so you have direct access to your flight, hotel booking and rental car reservation information.
It then organizes it in an easy-to-read format, much like Google Now cards.♨ Reminders
Now, when Google notices that somebody asks you to do something in an email (maybe to buy that ticket for the next trip), Inbox will automatically suggest that you set yourself a reminder to do that.
Reminders will now also sync between Google Keep and Inbox.
♨ ability to recall any email within the first 10 seconds after you first hit send (just like you can do with the Undo experiment in Gmail Labs),
♨ custom email signatures for Inbox that will sync across devices (but not your Gmail account)
♨ and the ability to switch Inbox’s swipe gesture from marking emails as done to deleting them by default.
And by the way, Inbox is not here to replace Gmail. At the moment anyway.
Quoting Google senior product manager for Inbox Shalini Agarwal:“We think about Gmail and Inbox differently. Gmail is our best-in-class email product and we want to keep it that way.” Inbox’s focus is slightly different, though. With Inbox, Google wants to “help people get back to the things that matter in their life.”+TechCrunch
