A post on Reddit allegedly contains a screenshot of a Gmail app interface that integrates many features taken from Inbox. They include a pinned-only toggle, per-subject bundling and Assistant-esque reminders. They may have been picked for preservation by Google before Inbox shuts down for good.

A screenshot posted by the Redditor moodio shows what appears to be a version of Gmail with extra added Inbox features. The latter app was once the Google service du jour due to its innovative AI-powered features. However, its experimental nature meant it never really caught on, leaving the company to compensate by transferring its capabilities to Gmail over time. They have included inline attachments, Nudges, Smart Replies and email snoozing. Now, it appears that more Inbox attributes are being cherry-picked for Gmail.

According to the new leak, these include an option to see pinned emails only in a Gmail feed. The purported new version of Gmail can also apparently bundle emails based on similar titles or subject-matter. There are also Reminders visible in this screen-shot, which suggests Assistant or Google Task integration. The screenshot also shows reminders at the top of the app's feed.

The screenshot also suggests a degree of app re-design in order to accomodate all of these new features. Fans of Dark Mode may be disappointed to learn that this app has a high white content in its background. As for Inbox itself, it is reportedly in line for the axe some time next month.
