We've just seen some new features in Inbox by Gmail: bundled newsletters and the ability to Save to Inbox links for later.

Newsletter Bundles

Inbox by Gmail now extracts the headlines from a newsletter and displays them in a useful format so you get more than just a snippet:

When you expand the bundle you get a new information card , like with calendar invites, flight details and hotel reservations, giving you more details on the news items.  This helps you see if the newsletter contains something that interests you and then you can pin the mail and snooze to appear later.
