I still don't get the whole Inbox thing — I've tried it, and it's just not my cup of tea. Still, I get why people love it (even if it just doesn't go well with my workflow), and I'm glad that it exists. I like options. If you're one of the folks who happen to use Inbox, you may be interested in some new stuff Google has been cooking up and just implemented into the app: "later this week" and "weekend" snooze options. I'm not sure why you'd want to put an email off till the weekend, but you know what, that's your choice and I respect that. You weekend warrior, you.

The neat thing about the weekend option is that users are able to customize when their weekend takes place. Being the uncultured individual that I am, I literally had no idea other places in the world use different days as the weekend, but apparently they do. Google is looking out for those of you who stray from the normal Saturday-Sunday weekend with options that should cover pretty much everyone out there. Good Guy Google.

These new time-savers should be hitting Inbox over the next week, so keep open your eyes if you're into this idea.
