Google to kill Inbox early next year

Inbox by Gmail

Google is Killing Inbox

Google said it wants to focus exclusively on Gmail, which has recently adopted a number of Inbox's features like smart replies and snoozing emails.

For those who don't recall, Inbox was Google's answer to Mailbox, the original smart-email client that was acquired (and, eventually, nixed) by Dropbox. As a result, we're planning to focus exclusively on Gmail and say goodbye to Inbox by Gmail at the end of March 2019.

The launch of the new Gmail in April was surely a sign that Inbox, Google's productivity-focused mail app, would soon meet its demise.

Well, in case you haven't noticed, numerous features that Inbox touted are now native in Gmail.

Background: About four years ago, to the day, the Gmail team announced Inbox. The company launched a new interface for Gmail this year which introduced several Inbox features.

Inbox was a testing ground of sorts for new Gmail features.

When I reviewed Inbox back in 2014 I quickly realized that the service was not something that I wanted to use.

One Inbox by Gmail feature that still hasn't made its way over to the standard Gmail service is the email bundling. Inbox was also a lot cleaner than Gmail, which tends to feel cluttered. Google published a support page that it says should help users transition from Inbox to Gmail. Key among those features will be bundling, that can help users customise inbox tabs and notifications. Whether that is going back to the Gmail app, or using a third-party app/service.
