Inbox is already arguably one of the best email apps for your smartphone, but thanks to a recent update it may be the best option for your smartwatch as well. The latest version of Inbox by Gmail finally lets you respond to emails with Android Wear, along with a few other helpful improvements.

Up until now, the only thing Inbox could do with Android Wear was display incoming emails and let you dismiss them. Now, the updated version includes the option to respond to new messages from your wrist using your voice. You can also mark an email or reminder as “done” without ever taking out your phone.

The latest Inbox update also introduces a better experience on tablets designed to take advantage of bigger screens. Finally, the app is adding predictive text, which should make it easier to type out new messages and reminders.

Google is already rolling out the latest version of Inbox (version 1.2) so you should be able to grab it in the Play Store if it hasn’t already updated automatically. If you still don’t have Inbox you can always email to request an invitation.
