4 Rating: 4 - 30,740 votes

If you want to install and use the Inbox by Gmail app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Inbox by Gmail in the search bar and press Search. Click on Inbox by Gmail application icon. A window of Inbox by Gmail on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

Thank you for reading this tutorial. Have a nice day!

Inbox by Gmail Software Features and Description

Your email inbox should help you live and work better, but instead it often buries the important stuff and creates more stress than it relieves. Inbox, built by the Gmail team, keeps things organized and helps you get back to what matters. • HIGHLIGHTS - Get the most important information without even opening the message. Check-in for flights, see shipping information for purchases, and view photos from friends right up front. • BUNDLES - Similar messages are bundled together so you can deal with them all at once. And get rid of them with one swipe. • REMINDERS - More than mail, you can add Reminders so your inbox contains all the things you need to get back to. • SNOOZE - Snooze emails and Reminders to come back when you are ready to deal with them: next week, when you get home, or whenever you choose. • SEARCH - Inbox helps you find exactly what you’re looking for— from your upcoming flight to a friend's address— without having to dig through messages. • WORKS WITH GMAIL - Inbox is built by the Gmail team, so all your messages from Gmail are here, along with the reliability and spam protection of Gmail. All of your messages are still in Gmail and always will be.

  • 5 Star App w/1 Star Support

    By TerpPilot
    UPDATE: Look....Google, if I take back all the bad things I said about your support of iPhone X will you PLEASE not kill off Inbox. For those that don't know Google plans to transition everyone back to Gmail. This is a HORRIBLE idea! Yes you've added some features from Inbox to Gmail but that does NOT make them equivalent. C'mon guys Inbox is leading edge and innovative. Gmail is stodgy and good for luddites. I'd pay for this app and even consider a subscription to keep it going. However you guys gotta bring back location based reminders! What genius over there decided removing functionality was a good idea? How great to get the email to appear at either the right time or the right place. OLD: Seriously Google why does it take so long to properly support your app? It's going on 3+ months and STILL no iPhone X support! Google and the Inbox team had the same slow support from initial launch to an iPad supported app. It's frustrating because the actual app and the features are so amazing and helpful to get your particular set of to-do's done. I'll happily re-write this to a 5 Star once you support the app and all the phone/tablet combinations fully and consistently. PLEASE!
  • This app has changed my life :-)

    By Enjoys my Family
    App update: Ever since the latest update, inbox prompts me as to whether to open email links in Safari or download the google chrome app every time i have a link in my email even though I turn off the “ask me every time” button. It is driving me insane. Please fix this google!!! Previous review: Love this app. I literally was about to ditch gmail because I hated the gmail app and the way gmail works in the native iOS mail app. I accidentally found out about this inbox app while reading a review about the new iOS 10. This app works like mail should. I love the bundling and I love how the links, pictures, and receipts within emails are visible. I have half the number of clicks as I use to and now I can find which email I'm looking for without opening each one. It is easier to delete things too. I do have two requests: 1. Give me an easy way to mark a message as "read" without opening it. 2. Give me a easy way to review my "unread" messages. The reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because for some reason the badge icon never changes from the number 2 no matter how many unread messages there are. Goofy! I finally turned off the badge icon. Overall, i will never go back to regular gmail and I am using the inbox by gmail interface on my computer also!
  • Great app for high-volume e-mail accounts

    By Nickname is available
    There are a few features that would make it perfect for me. First, I’d really like better support for non-bundle labels. In the Gmail app, all of a message’s labels are visible from the message list. This lets me be certain that my filters have correctly applied non-bundle labels before I archive them (mark them done). I do prefer Inbox’s interface and how it groups all messages into a few broad yet distinct bundles. But when I have to go digging through old e-mails, I prefer to have my labels available to easily search for messages about specific topics or from specific companies. But the support for non-bundle labels in Inbox is lackluster at best. Second, I’d really like a setting/option buried somewhere that lets me disable loading remote images. I realize the Gmail app doesn’t support this any more either, but I have remote images turned off in the browser version of gmail, and I would really appreciate being able to do the same here. I’m just asking, realizing perfectly well that it’ll never happen.
  • Red Badge Notification Will Not Go Away

    By The Talented Mr. Macon
    Inbox does a great job of organizing my email and tying in to my later Google profile. However, the persistent presence of that little red circle is driving me crazy. It's a known issue and Google hasn't fixed it. I've found lots of potential workarounds online but (1) none of them is a permanent fix and (2) this has been an issue for over a year so we should be past workarounds. The annoyance is that I never know if I have a new email or not. Sometimes the notification badge is there and I have a new email. Sometimes it's there and there's not a new email to be seen. The best is looking at the original Gmail app right next to the Inbox app and seeing two different notification counts. Ridiculous. Since Google can't be bothered to fix a known issue with one of their more popular sis, I can't be bothered to continue using it or give it anything better than a 1-star rating. For the great innovations that Google puts out, the customer service for their products is essentially nonexistent. They seem to just rely on the community to help and that doesn't lead to responsive customer interaction on what seem to be just simple fixes.
