Google is updating its awesome Inbox app for Android to deliver welcome improvements to the snooze function. Users will now be greeted by more options when they need to put off important messages until later, and you can have Inbox leave you alone on weekends if you want quiet time.

With the latest Inbox release, you will now see “Later this week” and “This weekend” options — alongside all the others you’re already familiar with — when using the snooze function. Google hopes that adding these will save you time, and decrease your reliance on the custom snooze option.

In addition, Inbox will let you specify which weekend days work best for you. For instance, you can choose Saturday-Sunday, Friday-Saturday, Saturdays and Sundays only, and more. This is ideal if you want quiet time on a Saturday or a Sunday, and don’t want to be bothered by emails.

These changes will be rolling out to all Inbox users over the next week, Google says. The company also encourages users to keep submitting their feedback so that it can deliver a better Inbox experience.
