Since its launch last year, Inbox by Gmail has added more features to make it smarter and more convenient to use. Today, the app is getting a highly requested feature that allows users more granularity and adds more options to the popular email snoozing feature.

The two new snooze times of ‘later this week’ and ‘this weekend’ are being added to the app. As people normally use a custom snooze to get those times, Google hopes this feature will save users both time and effort. Additionally, users can specify when exactly the weekend period starts with six available presets in snooze settings.

A previous update to Inbox added a smarter quick search feature that surfaces relevant information without needing to go into an email and new bundles that automatically create a travel schedule. Google has yet to make Inbox their default email service, but were redirecting some users to it from Gmail.

The updated snooze option is not yet live on the web and will presumably come to the Android and iOS apps via an update.
