Google’s new email client Inbox – which is available on invite-only – is working on an “undo send” feature will let users undo a sent email. At a Q&A session on Reddit, the team behind Inbox app shed lights on several of the upcoming features including the ability to undo a sent email as well as cross-browser support.Released in October, Inbox is a new email client for Google that aims to make the email experience less noisy and more productive. The app automatically analyzes your emails for contextual information and triggers corresponding actions. For instance, if an email says that you’ve a meeting at 11AM today, the app will automatically remind you about that meeting. In addition, Inbox also analyzes your email pattern to understand the kinds of emails and people you typically respond to. It then sorts such emails with high priority so that they get most of your attention. The major changes to its user interface is also a welcoming move.
Retracting a sent email is a handy feature. A similar option exists on Gmail’s web-version via its Google Mail Labs channel. It gives users a period of 10 seconds after hitting the send button to cancel the email. The team, however, hasn’t confirmed if the Inbox app will have the same approach for it. The other features the team announced included support for cross-browser, and integration with Google Drive. Both of these features could add some real values to the already a powerful app client. Tablet users can rejoice as well, as the team assures that an app for their larger screen mobile device is in the works.
These features will be added to the service in the coming weeks. The team recently said that there is a “long list” of Gmail features that will make their way to the Inbox app eventually. For now, Inbox only supports primary Gmail accounts.
