Google just released a huge update for the Inbox – and it’s now open to everyone

Google Inbox Invite

Compared to Gmail, Google’s Inbox app is a complete reimagining of email. Sure, it borrows plenty of features from earlier services like Mailbox, but it brings new features to the table as well, and it wraps them in a gorgeous user interface similar to the UIs found in other Google apps.

Well, Google announced on Thursday that it’s releasing a big update for its new “email killer,” and it’s also tossing out the invite system and opening Inbox up to all users.

In a post on its official Gmail blog, Google confirmed that Inbox is now open to all users. It also announced the release of a big update for the app that will introduce plenty of new functionality.

Here are some highlights from Google’s post:

More ways to stay organized with Trip Bundles
For starters, you’ve mentioned how much you like seeing key information at a glance, like when your package is arriving. So today Inbox is adding Trip Bundles: All of your emails about a trip will now be bundled together and the most important details (like flight times and hotel reservation numbers) will be available the instant you open Inbox.

More control with Undo Send, Swipe to Delete and Signatures
Being able to control your inbox, like setting your custom Snooze times, is also something you’ve told us matters. So today Inbox is helping you be more productive:

  • With Undo Send—now for the first time on your phone—you can take back an email right after sending in case you spotted a mistake, or have second thoughts
  • If you’d rather get rid of messages, you can make ‘Delete’ the default swiping action
  • If you want to personalize your sent messages, you can now add a custom signature
