Shortwave is now available on Android. The Google Inbox email successor is now finally ready for Android. The platform and app as you should probably know replicates many of the features that were once seen on the now-defunct inbox client of Google.
Shortwave on Android
Shortwave which is an email app for iOS and the web that helps to serve as the spiritual successor to Google Inbox, has finally fully arrived on Android devices following up to 18 months of beta testing. Version 1.0 of Shortwave as you should know is now available to download via Google Play. The basic version of the app however is free to use, although you will be needing to pay a $9 monthly subscription fee to unlock premium features.
Shortwave specifically was developed by a group of former Google employees to help fill the gap that was left after Google shut down its innovative Gmail alternative back in 2019. Inbox fairly was radical for its time in contrast to rival email clients, thus providing features such as Bundles (which automatically helped to organize your email by type) and Delivery Schedules to help control when those Bundles would arrive in your inbox. Its demise however was mourned by many.
Features and Benefits of the Shortwave App for Android
The Shortwave app and platform as you should know provides many of these very same Inbox features, in addition to a sweep button for easily and effectively marking emails en-mass, AI-powered smart replies, as well as options to quickly pin, snooze, archive, and even delete emails. The free version of the app also has some limitations (such as restricting users to 90 days of searchable email history), which can easily be unlocked with the $9 monthly subscription. A full list of Shortwave for Android’s features can be seen on the company’s blog.
And as noted by Android Police, this very latest release appears to be a web application rather than just a native Android app but the overall 1.0 experience it has is very much closer to what you would get to find on its iOS counterpart, when compared to the previous beta.
