The main complaint about Google Inbox – Google’s new Gmail app that displays related incoming message as ‘bundles’ – is that it doesn’t support custom e-mail addresses. On Wednesday, however, the Gmail Inbox Team, during a Reddit AMA, announced that custom address functionality, as part of its Google Apps support, is on its way, but no release date for the feature was given. The AMA response read:
Supporting these accounts comes with other demands and we’re working hard on addressing them so we can get Inbox to Google Apps users.
We were pleasantly surprised to see how open-minded Inbox users are to making big changes to their work email workflow, and the high demand for Inbox on Google Apps accounts has already caused us to speed up our efforts to bring Inbox to all of you. Hang tight!
The team also assured Reddit users that support for browsers other than Chrome was on its way.
