Google has become really good at keeping track of and highlighting important emails in Inbox that have to do with reservations (flight, hotel, restaurant, etc.), calendar invites, and package tracking updates. These types of emails show up with imagery and shortcuts to accessing the information you care most about, like full trip bundles.
But what if you wanted all of that automation to continue, along with a bit of added, precision control on your end? Let’s say, instead of wanting to dig through a bundle or search for package tracking, you could tell the package tracking email or hotel reservation to appear automatically, just as you need it? Starting today, you can.
Through the latest version of Inbox, you can swipe left to snooze select emails and quickly tell them to snooze to much more convenient times. For example, restaurant reservations can be told to snooze until an hour before your dinner. Your flight reservations will see an option to snooze until the day before you board the plane. Your hotel reservations can be snoozed until the day you check-in. That way, those important emails re-appear at the top of your inbox just in time.
The new snooze options show in the snooze pop-up box for the following types of emails:
- Package tracking updates
- Restaurant and event reservations
- Calendar invites
- Flight confirmations
- Hotel reservations
- Rental car reservations
And this is what the action looks like.
