Gmail Getting Google Now Built In

Google released details of its next major revision to the Gmail clients on Android, Chrome and iOS today - Inbox. This looks like a tool that takes the best of Google Now and applies it to your inbox. That means more intelligent grouping of email and Google Now like features for surfacing key information when you might need it.

It will be interesting to see how much Google is able to automate email. For example right now I use a combination of IFTTT and Evernote to provide some intelligence to my inbox, so I'll be delighted if Google can bring features from Google Now to Gmail and make that automation a single source task.
