A week ago Google rolled out Inbox, a tool that highlights and arranges messages and sets updates. Shortly thereafter the company quietly released a Chrome app for Inbox that pretty much or less acts as a shortcut to inbox.google.com.
The hot word to get Gmail Inbox in Google search is actually “Inbox” only, but you got to use it with a combo of keywords to get it working such as:
- “my inbox”
- “gmail inbox”
- “get inbox”
- “show inbox”
- “inbox from gmail”
- “inbox by gmail”
This works on mobile devices and on Google now as well. You can issue a command on Google Now like “show my inbox” and it’ll reply with voice that “here are your gmail messages” with a list of 5 of the most recent mails from your Gmail.
You can search/query e-mail by voice in Google Now or by simply throwing it to Google Search. Following examples work:
“show e-mails from Mark”
“search gmail for Android”
Search giants Google and Yahoo increasingly want to deliver results that not only pull data from the Web, but also from your personal reserves.
