Google Inc.’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) Inbox by Gmail has added some new “Snooze” options. After the feature’s initial roll out in July 2015, users can now customize options to snooze certain emails to prompt them again either “later this week” or “this weekend.”

After the tech giant unveiled its Inbox service, the snooze feature initially worked as a digital reminder for users’ emails.The update indicates that the company is still working on tweaking its platform to better appeal to users in terms of its layout and functionality. Even though Inbox doesn’t have the same user-base as Gmail’s active users, we believe that Google’s efforts might still work in favor of the service.

Users can even choose to set any day midweek as a convenient time to receive their emails according to their “weekend” timings. Since the company has paid careful attention to ensuring that it provides users with the simplest “time-saving” experience, the revamped snooze options enables users to manage and prioritize their important messages conveniently.
According to the official Gmail blog-spot, “These new options should hopefully save you some time, and decrease the need to use custom snooze.”
It is quite possible that the snooze update is in response to users’ feedback acknowledged by the company. By letting users select a specific day for their email reminders, Inbox aims to save users from the bother of having to opt for a customized snooze setting each time. However, users will still have the option to pick a specific day and time to regularly receive their email and reminder notifications.

Google’s update will surely help Inbox compete with other similar services as well.The snooze update will be made available to users sometime next week, and the tech giant is expected to introduce more tweaks to this feature, later.
