Google suggests with Inbox that they’re creating a new generation of email. It’s not meant to replace Gmail - yet - but it is made to turn your everyday un-modified email experience into a far more simple one. Instead of the face-melting masses of spam you’re used to, Inbox transforms your email experience into a manageable one. It includes your email and your notifications, and it's meant to revert you back to a time when email was reasonably manageable. And it looks nice, too.
