Google Inbox is being discontinued

Google is Killing Inbox

Google is Killing Inbox

Google launched the Inbox in 2014 as a standalone app to exist alongside the Gmail. However, there is a pretty big following for Inbox, so Google may face some backlash here.

The search giant said Wednesday that it would "say goodbye" to Inbox at the end of March 2019. Indeed, that same listing says that the last update was delivered on August 9, 2013 - more than five years ago at this point - so it isn't like development on Gmail Online has been particularly active lately.

Yes, endorsing Vick was a mistake for Nike , but the company should be commended, not boycotted, for supporting a true American hero like Kaepernick.

Inbox was generally seen as a potential incubator for new email features that may be adapted by Gmail, but since much of its features have already been rubbed off on Gmail, Harry Mccracken of the Fast Company said that it should not come as a complete surprise that Google sees that that the Inbox has already served its goal.

To ease the pain, perhaps for itself as well as its users, Google created a user guide for asylum seekers who will be vacating Inbox for Gmail over the course of the next seven months.

When Inbox launched, Google introduced and implemented new features such as email bundling and snoozing. As of Android 8.0 (Oreo), snoozing has become an OS-level feature for all notifications and not just emails. But after the company brought over most of the app's various features to the redesign Gmail, many questioned the client's future. "As a result, we're planning to focus exclusively on Gmail and say goodbye to "Inbox" at the end of March 2019", Matthew Izatt, Product Manager at Gmail, wrote in a blog post late on Wednesday. At the time when it launched Gmail lacked numerous features it has today. Similarly there are also alternatives for Bundles and Reminders.
