The alternative (and still sort of experimental) Gmail interface known as Inbox is receiving a new update today. This one improves the handling of events and newsletters, and lets you save links inside Inbox – for reading later, presumably.
The latter functionality can be achieved on a computer too, by using the new Inbox by Gmail Chrome extension, which basically does the same thing as the Google Keep Chrome extension we’ve discussed earlier – both save links, they just do it on different Google services.
On a mobile device, just share the website you’re interested in to Inbox, and it will be stored in the app for viewing at a later date.
Inbox will now gather emails from a single event in the same spot, and show you what’s changed at a glance. When you tap on any event you’ll get a comprehensive overview of it, with all changes.
The newsletters you usually read are getting smarter previews, letting you easily click through to the articles that interest you most. And once you’ve gone through the latest newsletter, it will be minimized in order to save space in Inbox.
