Google's feature-rich alternative to its standard Gmail website and app apparently lacked a very basic function: the ability to manually empty trash and spam. Thankfully, the company has started rolling out the feature to Inbox, adding "EMPTY TRASH/SPAM NOW" buttons in their respective folders. No need to jump back into Gmail just to do some spring cleaning... assuming you decided to switch to Inbox in the first place. Some commenters on the Google+ announcement of the rollout said they've been using the feature for weeks. But if this is the first time you've heard of it, enjoy flushing out your account's ever-increasing collection of junk mail.
