The latest update to Google’s Inbox by Gmail email client is a big one. New to the app in version 1.29 are integrated Trello, GitHub support and Google Alerts.
Any incoming notifications/email messages from Trello and Github will now be categorized in Inbox. You’ll receive an information card in Inbox showing a brief overview of what you need to know. Clicking it will bring up full details. Google has even included both ‘Open in Trello’ and ‘Open in GitHub’ options that will be seamlessly integrated with the apps if installed on your device. This way, you’ll be able to jump directly into the app in barely any time at all.
Also new with the update is support for Google Alerts, which are kind of like reminders from Google in the form of an email. You can read up on it here and see how they behave in Inbox below.
All Google Alerts will be organized into a carousel category, where you’ll be able to scan through and read a brief overview of each. Of course, clicking on it will give you the full details. The cards will be grouped at the top of your Inbox and remain pinned there until further action is given. But that’s not all!
Google has also implemented Google Drive support and a new drag and drop contacts feature. Google Drive support lets users quickly insert links into emails, adjust permissions for those links, and save email attachments directly to your Drive. The new drag and drop contacts feature is available exclusively for web, and allows users to simply move email recipients from and to cc, bcc and to.
The update is rolling out now giving access to all the additions included above. Click here to see more of the latest Google App Updates.
