Bundles help in clustering mails of same type in groups. For example, all your bank mails will be organized in one group and mails from your university in a separate group so that it becomes easy for you to trace mails. This feature is not just moving mails to specific groups but this feature will make Inbox adapt itself to the way you desire to group mails. So from next time onward, just check it and swipe it to send it to respective groups and not let mails crowd the way.
Highlight is self explanatory. You need highlights for urgent mails like flight ticket mails, movie ticket mails and stuffs like that. Besides highlighting the mails, the service sends messages which are not the original one, but a reminder to remind you about the event.
Reminder, Assists work similarly. They work as you intelligent private assistant and assist you in reminding important events like birthday parties, meetings, flights etc. You can change the reminder settings, set snooze to remind you again at a later time. So many features are being promised by Google. Let’s wait and see how things turn up.
