Inbox by Google was one of the best things Google had launched in the past years. It brought into a unified inbox almost everything we wanted. We must say that the design is no less than incredible, either. However, there is the lack of a few good things, especially the rich email signatures, also fondly called Google signature.
Email signatures / Google signature are something useful when you’re a professional. Thanks to the rich-text support in Gmail, you can add almost anything to the signature. I’ve been using my name, designation and basic contact info as the signature for a long while. This isn’t possible in Inbox, but there is surely a way out.
In Inbox, what you can do by default is to set up a signature via plain text. There is no option to add color or to include links. Don’t worry, though. We’ve found some methods that answer the question – How to add a signature in Gmail. We hope it helps you save a lot of time when you send emails.
