    Hate how google does roll outs. Although replication servers need time to be updated.

    I'm pretty sure the apk on the CNET site is legit...if you don't want to wait.

    Found one thing about Inbox yesterday that I don't like. Family members have been e-mailing me a lot of pictures lately for a project we are working on. I save them straight to my Google Drive account right from the message (in the G mail app). Could not find a way to do that with Inbox...the only option was to Save in the Downloads folder. Unless I just missed the option somewhere? I know a lot of people don't like / use cloud storage, but I like the ability to save attachments straight to Drive from the G Mail app. Not sure why Google would omit that from Inbox?

    Initial release. There a lots of things that I get the feeling they'll be adding in the future, but that does seem like something rather simple that they could've tossed in there.

    Very true, probably lots of cool new features will be added as they tweak it, upgrade it, etc. I still think Inbox is pretty cool...just not sure why they didn't put that option in there.

    I think Google is reading this post! o_O I just received an update notification for Inbox and updated the app. Now, under the "Share" option on embedded files, there is an option to share with Drive. Maybe I missed it yesterday (I am getting old...er) but it's there now...under Share...not under Save.

    Yeah. Drive tends to live in a bizarro world on android. You'd think save because it's a cloud drive, but it treats it more like you'd expect a social media app would be treated and puts in the share menu all the time. Handy for saving things from strange places to drive, but a bit confusing, especially if you're used to the computer where you can make Drive a location on your computer and SAVE things to it. Haha

    I just had an update available as well. Before taking it, I checked. Drive was listed under Share before the update. Not that it matters.

    OK...thanks for making me feel old. I obviously missed it yesterday. I must have looked under the Save options and not Share.

    Save gave me no options. Just saved it.
