The snackbar feature on Google Inbox is used to display contextual information and other stylish dialogues in an unobtrusive way. It is used to provide message notifications at the bottom of the screen, and covers the keyboard so that the user knows to take action on the message.
Here are some main points on how the snackbar works in Google Inbox:
- Snackbar covers the active keyboard when it is displayed.
- The snackbar appears at the bottom of the screen and offers contextual information or advice.
- It disappears after a few seconds, when the keyboard is dismissed or when a user takes action on the snackbar.

This feature is useful for displaying notifications in an unobtrusive way, as it appears quickly and offers the user advice or a message quickly, without obscuring the whole screen.
