Instead of bookmarking web pages or emailing yourself links to read later, there’s a much easier and more efficient way to save links and share them. WIth the Inbox by Gmail Chrome extension, you can do it all with one click.

  • Head to the Chrome Web Store and search for Inbox by Gmail. Click + Add to Chrome to install it.
  • Once it’s completed, look up on your toolbar, and you should see the Inbox by Gmail icon. As you’ll see, this icon will allow us to quickly save web content for later.

  • If you come across a story you find really interesting and want to read it later, click on the Inbox icon > Save to Inbox.


  • After you click on that, if you’d like to see it in your inbox, click View.


  • You’ll see the saved story at the top of the screen.


  • Because of the bundling feature of Inbox by Gmail, it will group any stories that you save together in this bundle until you have time to review them later. Once you’ve read them over, just hit the check mark to mark them as done and clear them from your inbox.


  • Alternatively, if you want to send an interesting story to someone else, just click on the Inbox icon in the toolbar again > choose Share via Email.


  • It will take you over to your inbox, with a compose window already open and conveniently ready to go, so you can just enter your recipient’s email and send him the link instantaneously.
