Google's Inbox Adds Custom Snoozing
Google today updated its Inbox email service with the ability to set custom snooze times. Google said Inbox should figure out when to snooze for most people based on their daily activity, but it also permits people to manually set their own morning, afternoon, and evening snooze times so they can be interruption free. In addition to the new snoozing feature, Inbox makes it easier for users to reach their contacts. Inbox, which is a substitute for Gmail, is free to download from the Google Play Store.
