Inbox is definitely something that’s received a lot of attention over the last couple of days. Google certainly knows how to drum up attention, with anyone who uses Gmail trying to get invites anywhere they can. Now users who got in to Inbox early are seeing an addition to their compose menu – an option to invite others.
As you can see, the invites are showing up just like in the Roald Dahl story as Golden Tickets. A total of three invites are being issued to current users of Inbox, which can be forwarded to the Gmail users of their choice.
Unfortunately, those who’ve been invited don’t immediately get three invites, so the rollout is still a fairly slow process. We’re working to get some invites to share with everyone as fast as we can. Hold tight and we hope to have some to give away soon.
