Inbox by Gmail

Wanna get in on the Inbox action, but don’t have an invite to spare? Never fear, Google’s here … to help. You know how it goes.

After trickling invites out every few days, it looks like the Inbox team is getting ready to open the gates, promising invites today:

“PT” is Pacific Time, and 3pm PT is 10am AEDT, so if you email [email protected] between 10 and 11am this morning (Sydney time, accounting for daylight savings), you should get your invite by midday.

    I missed the one hour time set. Sent them an email anyway and got my invite a few hours later. Thanks Google 🙂

    Got mine, was hiding in a category.

    Seems like a bit of a mess, and there’s no widget.

    EDIT: 13:44 AEST invitation arrived so my bad for badmouthing Google 🙂

    Also sent one during the correct time and got a response
    “Thanks for requesting an invite. We’ll send you one as soon as possible.
    Your friends at Gmail”

    And I used the #inboxHappyHour tag in the email but still nothing (12:17)

    So broken promise – or overwhelmed with requests? Of course it could just have been a push for requests – maybe their bonus is based on the number who request an invitation?

    You might have to try a few times before you get through; google says that an email sent from google to google fails permanently because google can’t deal with the rate of emails sent to google…..
