Google has updated the Inbox email app and added several interesting features including the ability to let users easily save and access to-dos for later, and over 20 useful assists to further help people with reminders. In a blogpost, the company also announced improvement to the user interface of Inbox’s tablet app, and support for Android Wear devices.

We reviewed the Inbox email client earlier and were quite impressed with the intuitive features it brings to the table. But the reminders and to-dos features didn t really strike us as full-fledged at that moment. But now users can simply add an email address, phone number, or link to a reminder. The assist feature then helps people add more information to a reminder, and edit the schedule among other tweaks. Also Read - Google's experimental Inbox email app is shutting down in March 2019
Some Assists even combine information from multiple sources to give you what you need, Google writes. For example, when you create a reminder to return a product you purchased, the purchase date and business from your confirmation email, the business s return policy from the Knowledge Graph, and the current date all combine to give you a countdown of how many days you have left to return your purchase.
The new version of Inbox also now works better with Android Wear smartwatches. Users will now be able to access their email from their own wrist. Additionally, they will also be able to read the entire email instead of the limited snippets that were previously available to them. The tablet client for the app has also received two noticeable improvements. Its interface now fits well on larger screens, and it looks less stretched out than before. Secondly, the search for pulling up contact cards and emails has become speedier as well.
