On Thursday, the company announced the iOS app update through its Official Gmail blog, noting that the app which is now compatible with the iPad has been improved "making it easier to use on more devices and browsers." Additionally bug fixes and performance improvements have been made.
If you are still not aware of Inbox by Gmail, the app was launched in October last year and it is still accessible via an invite-only system. The company also opened invitations for 24 hours in January.
With Inbox, users can keep their Gmail email address and contacts. The app also adds organisational tools.

Apart from normal Messages management features such as 'pinning', 'sweeping' the Inbox by Gmail app also has a 'Snooze' option for emails and reminders, which not only allows users to set a custom time but also a location-based snooze as well. Other than the same day time, users can snooze emails and reminders to another date and time, or a place. Inbox users will also be able to save and name common places, such as home, work, and library.
The option to snooze to 'Someday' has also been given in the Inbox by Gmail app on Android and iOS. Users can check out snoozed emails/ reminders by opening the app menu, and tapping on Snoozed. These can also be edited or moved back into the inbox from there.
