Google adding Inbox by Gmail to Google at Work, issues new warning to webmasters

Google has begun a trial of a Google at Work version of its Inbox by Gmail app, with the search and mobile giant also rolling out new warnings on websites that contain malicious software.

 

Inbox, first unveiled in October of last year, is a new interface for the company’s Gmail service that integrates additional information from the web into a message inbox and has a range of features to help keep users organised.

 

Inbox highlights the key information from important emails without needing to open each message and adds in additional useful information from the web that wasn’t in the original message.

 

The service is now open to selected early adopter companies, with businesses able to apply by emailing [email protected] from their Google Apps for Work administrator account. Google warns not everyone who emails will be invited into the early adopter program and that it will work closely on gathering feedback from companies in the program.

 

On a separate front, Google is rolling out new malware warnings in Chrome, with Google also flagging sites with malware in its search results and disabling ads that contain malware.

Google recommends website owners sign up with Webmaster Tools in order to access up-to-date alerts of when it detects malware on a website. Full details are listed under the Diagnostics tab in Webmaster Tools.
