A bit about Bundles in Inbox

by Guest Post on November 26, 2014

in Gmail

One of the first things you’ll notice using Inbox is that it feels less cluttered and overwhelming with messages grouped into Bundles.

Bundles expand on Gmail’s categories so you can stay organized with less effort and read the most important messages—like those from friends and family—first. You’ll also experience less interruptions since bundled messages don’t create a notification on your phone by default.

With Bundles, promotions are neatly organized, purchases are in one place, and all your trip information is together all so you can deal with related messages all at once. For example, you can open up a bundle, quickly pin the messages you want to keep in your inbox and sweep away the rest.

Of course that’s not the only way you’re in control. You can also teach Bundles to adapt to the way you work by choosing which messages you’d like to see grouped together and when they appear in your inbox: as they arrive, once a day, once a week or even skip the inbox entirely.

Try setting your Promos and Social bundles to once a day and see if that helps you focus on other messages first.

Bundles work together with Highlights to give you just the information you need at a glance so stay tuned for a closer look at Highlights next week. If you aren’t using Inbox by Gmail yet, look for an invite from a friend or email us at inbox@google.com to get an invitation as soon as more become available.
