Google to shut down Inbox by Gmail

Adjust Comment Print

Launched about four years ago, the Inbox email app was created to work alongside Google's popular email service Gmail. The news was on Google's blog The Keyword, with Google justifying the closure by committing to "a more focused approach that will help us bring the best email experience to everyone".

"We'll be focusing on Gmail & saying bye to Inbox at the end of March 2019". However, several of its features have been introduced to Gmail. The modification comes to be reliable not long after the online search engine big launched brand-new updates to Gmail from June this year.

What do you think about Google killing off Inbox in favour of Gmail? On mobile devices - Android and iPhones - they can uninstall the Inbox app and download the Gmail app. In that announcement, the internet giant also said the Gmail Offline Chrome app would stop working at some point and recommended that users remove it and install the new offline functionality for the Gmail app instead.

The other storms — Tropical Storm Isaac and Tropical Storm Helene — are both expected to become hurricanes Sunday or Monday. It is too early to know the exact path the storm will take but it could hit land on Thursday, the centre added.

Inbox was a place where Google was testing new email ideas like Smart Reply, snoozing emails and other similar items. All these features are not present in gmail app at that time. For example, emails that are specifically for online transactions will be bundled together in a single inbox. While the company did not mention the correct date, Google released a Support Guide with the goal that Inbox users can make the change to Gmail and adapt to the original email app.

Google has already added a new webpage detailing information on how to easily transition from using Inbox to Gmail.

The incoming discontinuation of Inbox shouldn't be a huge surprise to many since it never achieved mainstream success because it wasn't being used by a lot of people. But fast-forward 30 years and with just the phone in your pocket, you can use email to contact virtually anyone in the world...from your best friend to the owner of that bagel shop you discovered last week.
