While Google updated its Hangouts for Gmail and the Hangouts app for Android, it also gave a minor update to the Inbox by Gmail app. The app was launched in October this year and is still accessible via the invite-only system.
The update for Inbox by Gmail app now improves the Android user's tablet experience and comes with few interface tweaks and performance improvements. The updated Inbox app now also gives suggestions while creating a reminder in the app.
As for Android Wear users, the Inbox app now lets them view messages, mark them as done, and reply to mails without opening the app on the smartphone. The updated Inbox app is available to download from Google Play. It is worth noting that the performance improvements and the Reminder suggestions feature is also available for iOS users in the form of app version 1.1, as per the App Store listing.

Google, besides updating its Inbox app, also announced support for Content Security Policy (CSP) in Gmail on Wednesday. With the addition of CSP support, Google says that it aims to eliminate those extensions that behave 'badly' and load certain codes interfering with the user's Gmail session.
The search giant recently updated its Drive app for Android and iOS, and the Docs, Sheets, and Slides Android apps. Users were recently also given more options to edit and work with Office documents from Gmail. Earlier this month Google announced that users could click on a dedicated button placed next to download a file or save to Google Drive button and start editing. The firm adds that the Microsoft Office attachment gets saved and converted in Drive to Google's own document format.
