Google’s Email App, Inbox, Finally Supports the iPhone X

Inbox by Gmail app icon

One of Google’s more popular apps is Inbox, its first-party email app. It’s popularity isn’t just on Android, though, with iOS users adopting the app as their own, too.

But for iPhone X owners, the Inbox app has been left without support since launch. That is finally changing on Thursday this week, though, as Google has officially updated the Inbox app for iOS to support the iPhone X and its notch design. The latest version of the app is available right now, at the time of publication. The update itself measures in at 144MB.

Downloading and installing the new software means Inbox users on the iPhone X will see the black bar(s) at the top of the screen will be removed. This means the app will naturally support the notch design. Google confirmed back in April that it was working on building support for the iPhone X with its Inbox app, but the wait has certainly been felt by Inbox owners on Apple’s newest high-end smartphone.

Google is more than likely rolling out the change so that it can be in line with Apple’s own requirements for iOS apps beginning this month. Remember, back in May Apple announced that, beginning in July, all iOS apps would need to be built with the iOS 11 SDK and fully support the iPhone X’s display.

Now, with the update to version 1.3.180617, Inbox by Google officially supports the iPhone X.
