Google has added many features to its Inbox email service, but they were mostly for Android and iOS platforms. One of the recently introduced features in Gmail for Android was rich text formatting and, now, this functionality is available in the desktop version of Inbox by Gmail, as well.



Google has released Inbox on October 22, 2014, as a beta version, and users needed an invitation to register. The email service became available to everyone on May 28, 2015 and almost a month later was added the Undo Send button, which allowed users to cancel sent messages within 10 seconds after hitting the Send button.

Months ago, the developers brought the option to preview newsletters in the Inbox by Gmail Android app. So, users were able to view calendar event notifications in a standard view, and they appeared just like they would normally d inside the calendar app. Then, the email service came with better link previews and a new option to smart reply to incoming emails, based on the concept.

Users normally format texts using with a keyboard and mouse, so Google decided to bring this functionality to its Inbox for desktop, after previously, there were able only to bold, italicize, and underline text. Now, at the bottom of the compose window, there’s a new panel where users can choose different fonts and they are allowed to choose the color and size of the text.

Currently, there are eleven fonts and four size presents, but the background color of the text can’t be changed, only the text color. So, if you want to break the monotony, you will surprise your friends with a colorful text, and you don’t even need to press an option to open up a toolbar, as the formatting options are visible and easy to find.
