Right now, the Gmail Inbox seems to be a "love it or hate it" product/service from Google. Those who use it swear by it, and those who don't like it have several complaints. Of course, Google is constantly trying to improve on the concept, and today's newest feature is an intriguing idea. It's called Gmail Snooze and its purpose is to help you organize your emails so that they pop up at just the right time. Here's a quote with the details straight from Google:

"Starting today, Snooze in Inbox is getting a bit more convenient—when you snooze an email that has dates and times (like event confirmations or shipping notifications), you’ll get a one-tap option to snooze to exactly the right time, like the day of your concert or the morning your package will arrive.

You'll see these new Snooze options on most of these types of emails:

  • Package tracking updates
  • Restaurant and event reservations
  • Calendar invites
  • Flight confirmations
  • Hotel reservations
  • Rental car reservations
So next time, try snoozing that email to the day before the event. Then sit back and relax, knowing your email will come back at just the right time." ~ gmailblog
With all these extras you would think they would have all the basics covered but they don't. How about a dark/night mode? What about a universal inbox that you can set to open by default? I didn't read about those features in the description so if they do indeed have them please feel free to correct me.
