Google has just released a Chrome app for the new Inbox by Gmail service to the Chrome Web Store. The app adds an icon to your Chrome apps menu to allow easy access to Inbox.
At time of writing, the app doesn’t appear to be anything more than a ‘glorified bookmark’ to inbox.google.com, but there’s every chance that it offers greater functionality than what appears on the surface. At any rate, it’s probably worth adding to your Chrome apps, if for no other reason than to get new functionality pushed to your browser or ChromeOS device as it comes out. It also comes with a shiny icon, and who doesn’t love those?
