5 new features of Inbox by Gmail you don't want to miss

Inbox by Gmail gained five features today, many of them long-awaited by users.

If you've switched to using Inbox by Gmail, then you're probably painfully aware that some basic -- but nearly necessary -- features are missing. Fortunately, Google updated the app today with five new features. Among these are Trip bundles, Keep reminders appearing in the app, Swipe to delete, Signatures and Undo send.

Trip bundles and Keep reminders work automatically, but here are a few tips for the other new features:

  • Swipe to delete

This setting was much anticipated by Inbox users, because marking every email as Done just wasn't cutting it. However, you'll have to enable it to make it work. Head to Settings > [account name] > Action when done with messages > Move to trash.

  • Signatures

Ready to finally add your name, a quote or some other catchy information to your messages? Now you can by heading to Settings > [account name] > Signature > Toggle on and provide the signature text.

  • Undo Send

Thankfully there's no steps to make this feature work, but you might be wondering where it is. When you send an email, you'll see a banner appear at the bottom of the page that lets you undo sending -- sort of like Labs feature available for Gmail on the Web.

Note: You will need to be on Inbox by Gmail version 1.8 for these features to work. If you don't see them after updating the app, try restarting your device.
