Save to Inbox Option on Android

Hi,
I have a Samsung S7 Edge running Oreo.  Google Inbox App doesn't appear able to 'Save To Inbox' web links from my browser when I use the Share functionality. in the past I would be able to share a link to Google Inbox, then I would get a choice of either to 'Save to Inbox' or 'Share via Email'. Now it just places the link in an email automatically without giving me the choice when I click SHARE, then select the Google Inbox icon. Is this something you can please check whether it is working or just broken maybe on my phone? I tried uninstalling/reinstalling Google Inbox to no avail.
Thanks
Jack

I ran into the same issue last night. Selecting Inbox when sharing a link from Chrome now only generates an email, instead of letting you pick whether to Save to Inbox or Draft Email. I have a Google Pixel 2 running Pie.

This is a new change to the workflow.

Hi
 
This is a shame if it's removed permanently
Can you confirm if it's permanent along with why the workflow is changed?
It means I would need to stop using inbox as a bookmarking tool which had been really useful up to now as described here

As far as I know the workflow changed to email instead.  BUt on desktop you can still save to inbox so no reason to abandon Inbox fo rthis

Well, I'm telling you from my  point of view there is a reason to abandon Inbox. Unless there is some other google service that replaces this?  Otherwise I will need to move to raindrop.io which is a pain as I enjoyed having everything in Inbox as my GTD workflow.  I use Inbox on Android mainly for browsing (not desktop Inbox).  By changing to email it means an extra step of putting in an email address, wheras before it was very easy (one click). The other thing is I don't want bookmarks sent to me as an email. I want them grouped as they were before.
