inboxWhen Google announced Inbox by Gmail, many were surprised that despite Google having plenty of experience with web email clients, oddly enough text formatting in Inbox wasn’t particularly powerful. However we suppose the idea of Inbox is to keep your inbox clean, but we’re sure many users would have appreciated richer text formatting options too.

With that being said, if you’re a frequent Inbox user, you’re in luck. Google has recently announced that they have made some changes to the service and it will now be able to offer up better text formatting options. This includes the ability to create numbered or bulleted lists, write text that is bold, underlined, or in italics, and they will also be able to create links.

Like we said these are pretty much basic text formatting options that should have been there from the start, but for some reason Google did not feel that it was particularly important. Either way we suppose better late than never, right? In the meantime if you’re an Inbox user you should be able to access those text formatting options now.

In the meantime if you don’t have an Inbox by Gmail account yet, you can go ahead and sign up for one via Google’s website.
