Count the ways that Google's Inbox cured my pesky "emailments."

Love this post by +Brian Lovin exploring all of the little details in Inbox that our designers and engineers really sweated over.

Little details make a big difference!

anyone have an invite to pass along? i've already sent a couple of email requests to Google, but no luck so far.  it's tough to be an early adopter when you're not allowed the opportunity.  it's because i'm Canadian, isn't it... ;)

Inbox is designed to work well out of the box, but it is also very configurable. Personally, I've set mine up to unbundle Finance, Forums, and Updates so that those messages show up right in the Inbox.  I also set Promotions to show up only once per day.

If you're already using Inbox, and you've had a chance to kick the tires a bit, have you made any adjustments that work well for you?

Yeah, the once a day/week for bundles is nice, but the fixed time of day isn't working for me. promos for example are useless at 7am in the morning. I do my online shopping at night!

Today we are launching something I've been working on for the past two years: a complete rethink of how email should work, and an Inbox that does more of the work for you to help you get back to the things that really matter:

http://www.google.com/inbox/
Inbox by Gmail is a new app from the Gmail team. Inbox is an organized place to get things done and get back to what matters. Bundles keep emails organized. See the Highlights without opening emails. Plan or procrastinate with Snooze, and get things done with Reminders.

My band, +The Gold Medalists, is headed in to the studio next month to record our 2nd full-length album.  We're going to +Tiny Telephone in San Francisco to record with all analog gear like our rock-n-roll forebears.  Its going to sound amazing, have an old school vibe, and be a great experience. The songs are great - by far our best yet.

But we could use a little help.

The economics of the record business are crazy and getting crazier. Artists make virtually nothing from streaming services like Spotify or Rdio.  We make a lot less than you'd think from download services like iTunes or Amazon. When you buy a song or stream from any of these services almost all of the money goes to the service, not the artist.

Many of you bought or streamed our last album, but the money we made from that was a tiny fraction of the cost to record it.  So this time we're trying something different.  If you're interested in our album and/or like supporting local music, please help us fund the recording by contributing to our indiegogo campaign.  That way we get to use the money for recording rather than supporting middlemen, and you get fun perks along the way in addition to the album itself!

Check out our campaign:

Thanks!

Your email is important to you, and making sure it stays safe and always available is important to us. In 2013, Gmail was available 99.978% of the time, which averages to less than two hours of disruption for a user for the entire year. And starting today, Gmail will always use an encrypted HTTPS connection when you check or send email so no one can listen in on your messages as they go back and forth between you and Gmail’s servers.

I still find it incredible that Google had to learn the hard way that everything that leaves your building should be encrypted. A lesson they had to learn with my data.

One of my favorite hidden features of Inbox is creating a reminder to return something you ordered online.  Try it out!

When creating a reminder, type in "return" and Inbox will give you your recent online orders in autocomplete.  If you tap (or click) on one of them the assist will tell you how many days you have left to return that item!

Just another example of Inbox doing the work so you don't have to.

My open letter to Google Inbox

I have complex feelings about Google's new interface to Gmail. So I thought I'd write Inbox an email to talk about it:

I, too, find it a bit unnerving to see emails disappear. I know they don't really, but it feels flimsy to me. I might get used to it once I understand it better.  I think this is nice for "zero inboxers" but not for others who approach email in different ways .

Pro Tip: Inbox on the web supports plus mentions to add people to a thread quickly.  Type + while composing or replying and it will autocomplete against your contacts.

Gmail is ten years old and it was time to update it for the mobile world and generally make it more Googley.   So do some rethinking, add a lot of AI, take advantage of phone smarts, tap into the Google Now backend, and you've got Inbox, an app built on top of Gmail that you use instead of Gmail.  My report....
Google’s rethinking of email lets you get information without opening messages

Excited that we're rolling this out!
 
Promotional mail has a lot of images, from pictures of snazzy new shoes to photos of that rock climbing gym you’ve been wanting to try. To help you find what you’re looking for faster, you can now sign up for a new field trial (g.co/gmailfieldtrial) for Gmail that lets you view the Promotions tab in a more visual and engaging way: https://goo.gl/nFZIxE

LOL! Ever since the "new look" became mandatory, imho, Gmail has headed downhill at a rapid clip. That UI is a major m pain to use. There's a huge difference in email (esp used for professional purposes) v/s something that appears to be trying to be email, an electronic ad board, social media, etc. By using Old Compose, I've managed to escape the new "Compost" experience and few other "features". It was a nightmare to get of the autosorting (Promotions, etc). Sadly, it rather looks like I'm going to have to take the time our of a wildly busy schedule to find another email provider in the not too distant future.  Gmail today is a classic example of how a simple, highly useful app becomes a bloated mess!

This is amazing and hilarious.  Go Canada!
A Toronto-based group wants to remind people that the Olympics have always been a "little gay" and they should stay that way.

Pure genius, unlike the Gmail new compose window which is still broken 6 months after being forced on paying users.

Skip the pizza, go for the chicken! The pizza is pretty mediocre here but the rotisserie chicken is EXCELLENT. Highly recommended for the chicken alone.

Amazing donuts. The spiced chocolate may be my favorite.

One of my favorite cocktail bars in the city. My favorites are their Moscow Mule and Dark and Stormy. A friend of mine passed out sprawled across a barrel here and was politely asked to leave, so narcoleptics might want to drink elsewhere.

Amazing cocktails and a nice absinthe selection. We had the St. George's from across the bay which was excellent (of course).

Reasonable food, fantastic margaritas. The margaritas are the real draw here.
