The Inbox app is getting home screen shortcuts for Compose and Reminders. As the name suggests the Compose shortcut will allow users to start writing an email by directly accessing the blank email screen. Similarly, the Reminders shortcut opens to a prompt screen where a new reminder can be scheduled.

It must be noted that these are not widgets but actual shortcuts and hence will not offer any visual feedback on your home screen. Google’s Inbox app that was invite only at the time of its launch last year is now available for everyone since last month.
