How to get invited for Inbox by Gmail

Google has just started sending out invites for its new email system; an alternative to Gmail. Its called Inbox. Nope, its not public yet. Instead Google decided to use the "invite only" approach for the time being. Here's a sneak peak:



Inbox is different from Gmail, designed to focus on what really matters; as reported on this Official Google Post:
Email started simply as a way to send digital notes around the office. But fast-forward 30 years and with just the phone in your pocket, you can use email to contact virtually anyone in the world…from your best friend to the owner of that bagel shop you discovered last week. 
With this evolution comes new challenges: we get more email now than ever, important information is buried inside messages, and our most important tasks can slip through the cracks—especially when we’re working on our phones. For many of us, dealing with email has become a daily chore that distracts from what we really need to do—rather than helping us get those things done.
 

Google has begun to roll out a second wave of invites, following yesterday's first batch. You can even invite your friends. While not everyone who registered, got an invite, be sure to check out your inbox in case you receive it. Inbox can be said as an intelligent version of Gmail. It offers an intelligent system to sort out information and bundle things into groups, so you can easily figure out what's worth reading anyway. Besides this, it offers the ability to act as a personal assistant with reminders, create to-do lists and snooze items.

Assist functionality will even help you make better reminders, for example, if you write a reminder to call the grocery store, Inbox will supply the store's phone number and tell you if it's open or not. Assist works for your email also. If you make reservation for a restaurant online, it adds a map to your confirmation email. Book a train online and Inbox provides a link to check-in.
