Google to offer Inbox to its business customers starting next month
Inbox is an app offered by Google that is like a Gmail inbox on steroids. With Inbox, you can more easily sort out your Gmail, snooze the messages in your inbox and even rescind messages you've sent before they are read. Google has discovered that many of its users want to be able to access Inbox at the office.

With Inbox at the office, you can more easily keep track of your appointments. Certain email messages related to corporation business can be snoozed until they are officially released, lowering the odds of someone stealing the information from your phone and getting it in advance. And Google says that since Inbox was built on the same infrastructure as Gmail, it is secure enough for corporate use.

In March, Google plans on offering Inbox to some of its Google Apps customers for case studies. If you think that you'd like to use Inbox as your primary email client for work, and your firm has many mobile users, you should send an emailed request for a Inbox invite from your Google Apps for Work administrator account. You need to send the request to Those who are approved will get to help Google build Inbox for work.

After trying Inbox for Android, I've returned to normal Gmail, there are missing functions and to be honest I didn't like it.

I returned to the normal gmail app as well. I just didn't like the inbox app.

Considering that I currently using a Gmail business account, I dont see a lot of companies jumping on this. Regular Gmail is simple and easy to use, inbox would be a little more complicated to catch the new features

Identical opinion, there are missing functions that Gmail has that I like
