Once you receive an invite via email, open the Inbox app on your iOS device and you will be able to set up your personal Gmail account.
Google launched Inbox by Gmail a few weeks ago in an attempt to reinvent our email inbox. In the new system, messages are treated like to-dos where the system automatically groups messages into bundles based on their content and your filters. These bundles can be dismissed all at once, making email management even easier. The new email system includes the ability to set reminders and the ability to “snooze” an email message (much like the feature in Mailbox).
Inbox currently works with any personal Gmail account. The company says that it will eventually bring support for Google Apps accounts, Google Business accounts, and other email clients like Yahoo and Outlook, in the hopes to be your all-in-one email client.
Inbox by Gmail is available as a free download from the App Store and requires any device running iOS 7 or later.
