As of yesterday, Inbox by Gmail is now open for everyone! If you haven't yet, download the app and give it a go!

As part of this announcement, we introduced Trip Bundles. They automatically group your flight, hotel and car rental confirmation emails, and highlight the most important information like confirmation numbers and real-time flight departure times.

To take a journey down memory lane and relive your old trips, just tap on Trips from the app menu :)

Today I'm super excited to announce that we are launching Inbox by Gmail!

Behind the scenes we have been working long and hard to completely rethink how email should work and how to make an Inbox that really works for you.
This is only the first step, but I'm pretty sure it is going to be a super exciting journey. Join us!

We've rolled out a bunch of enhancements to Hangouts in Gmail. Hope you'll like them!
 
Some improvements to Hangouts in Gmail

Starting today you’ll see some changes in your conversation list in Hangouts, including message snippets and the return of green “availability” bubbles to make it easier to see which of your friends are currently active. With the new search icon, you can see a list of all your chat buddies and find other friends on Hangouts. And whether you’re happy, grumpy, or any of the other seven dwarfs (plus a few not in the storybook classic), you can set your mood using one of 80 emoji. Your friends will have no problem guessing how you’re feeling that day.

These features will be rolling out today. If you’re not using Hangouts in Gmail already, click on your profile picture above your chat contacts to “Try the new Hangouts.”

Are you using Auto Backup to store photos from your phone in the cloud? We just made it a whole lot easier to attach those photos to an email.

Refresh your Gmail to check it out!

Set your Status on Hangouts in Gmail

Status messages for Hangouts in Gmail are “available” starting today! Status messages make it easy to tell your Gmail contacts what you’re doing - whether you're going on a trip, working from home on Tuesday, or thinking about adopting a puppy. 

You can see your friends’ statuses by selecting the “Contacts” tab on the bottom left corner of Hangouts. If you’re not already using Hangouts in Gmail, simply click on your photo above the chat list and select “Try the new Hangouts”.

It is unfortunate that I don't get pop ups hoevering or clicking on other countries.
