Google’s Inbox by Gmail is receiving an update today that brings Google Drive and Alerts integration, as well as more information from third-party services Trello and GitHub.

Among the new features, new integration with Trello and GitHub will bring project updates from those services into the Inbox feed as email notifications:

If you use Trello, you’ll get a summary of what’s new with your Trello projects, so you can stay up-to-date on the latest updates. And for those of you who use GitHub, you’ll get a summary of code changes and filed issues for each repository.

scroller-v2Today’s update also brings Google Alerts into Inbox with the ability to browse alerts and also view new alerts from within your inbox as they pop up (as pictured above). And integration with Google Drive means you can now insert Drive links directly in emails as well as save files you receive in emails to Drive. Google notes you can also adjust permissions for the Drive links you insert. 

Lastly, also arriving with today’s Inbox update is the ability drag-and-drop contacts within email fields on the web and a faster way to delete emails alongside the current “mark as done” function.

Inbox is available for Android, iOS and on the web.
