Google to expand Inbox to select Google Apps customers in March

Google will soon roll out invites for their Inbox email app to some Google Apps customers. First launched in October 2014, Inbox is a new, Gmail-based take on email management. The roll out begins in March, with Google choosing a select few companies for the early adopter program at first, wanting to work with each business closely.

From Google:

To start, we plan to work very closely with the early adopter companies, so not everyone that applies will be accepted right away, but the program will continue to expand over the coming months.

To sign up, a Google Apps administrator must apply for entry into the early adopter program at

  • I do like this app but sometimes it seems to cumbersome to "delete" an email. It's like Google wants you to archive everything. I would a swipe to delete like Mailbox has. Also, have options to set the default snooze times to what I want. Sent from the iMore App
  • Typo: *Want a slide to delete. Sent from the iMore App
  • I swipe now to delete in inbox for Android.
  • Can't do that on iPhone I guess. Sent from the iMore App
  • Yes, Google wants you to archive everything. Why delete when you can archive, then sort and sift through years of emails to find that one message about what your husband/wife really likes to get for their birthday.
  • I don't want to archive everything. If it's important I'll file it in a folder. Sent from the iMore App
  • I tried using Inbox for a few months, and finally went back to regular Gmail. I just don't like the interface, and the way it organizes everything. I gave it shot, thinking it would just take some time to get used it, but the more I used it, the more it annoyed me.
  • I had Inbox on a Note 4. I went back to regular Gmail after only one week. Then I traded my Note 4 for an iPhone 6 Plus and am still happy with regular Gmail. I can see the appeal that Inbox has but it was more than I needed.
  • Unlike the others I haven't got annoyed of Inbox yet. Mainly because I don't get much email in my Gmail, it's only used for my UTUBE account and tumblr which I rarely get on. The app has potiental, I just hope it goes in the right direction. To me it seems like Google is using this to push the annoying "Tab Sorting Gmail" idea.
