Inbox, Google’s playground for email innovation, is going bye-bye

  • Google Inbox by Gmail Google to end Inbox by Gmail Gmail redesign Inbox by Gmail features Smart Reply in Gmail Google Tasks Hover Actions by Gmail Google Keep Gmail app Google updates Gmail for PC

In a way, Inbox served as a testbed for future Gmail features. "As a result, we're planning to focus exclusively on Gmail and say goodbye to Inbox by Gmail at the end of March 2019". Just another case of Google killing off an app or service, Google giveth and Google taketh.

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. It was created to test out innovative features and give users a new way to interact with their emails. Google did not say why it was shutting down Inbox, which was released in 2014 and pitched as a more nimble and experimental email app than the older Gmail app.

We introduced the new Gmail in April this year, incorporating numerous same features you've come to love about Inbox plus newer features like Smart Compose, which helps you draft emails faster. Even tasks have made there way over from Inbox with the recent redesign. Key among those features will be bundling, that can help users customise inbox tabs and notifications.




Which isn't to say that Gmail is bad. Yet, at this time there is still no word on when we can expect that feature to roll out to Gmail. Inbox won't be shuttered immediately, with a transitional period until March 2019.

No one likes losing their favorite app or service and being forced to transition to another.

We're going to miss the Blue of Inbox but it seems like many much-loved services before it Google has plans and they don't include Inbox. The company confirmed the news through a blog post on September 12 titled "Inbox is signing off. Find your favourite features in the new Gmail". "We know change is hard, so we've created a transition guide to help you switch from Inbox to the new Gmail easily".
