Google is shutting down ‘Inbox by Gmail’ app by March 2019

Google's Inbox is a different approach to email than the standard Gmail app.                  Josh Miller  CNET

Google launched Inbox by Gmail nearly four years ago with innovative features not found in Gmail.

Google also offers alternatives to features of Inbox which have not been added to the Gmail yet. Compared to Gmail, Inbox is something of a dark horse and has often been regarded as a testing ground for features that later make their way into Gmail. At the time when it launched Gmail lacked numerous features it has today.

Thankfully, Google will keep Inbox plugged in through March 2019, so you at least have a healthy amount of time to get reacquainted with Gmail (Android, iOS) - which has been busily incorporating and expanding upon a number of Inbox features, such as smart replies. The company introduced the app as an experimental platform to test new features which will later rolled out to Gmail.

Google has announced that features from Inbox that haven't been added to Gmail yet may be added in the future.

Google is set to shut down its alternate mailing app, Inbox by Gmail, in March 2019, giving users time to shift to the traditional Gmail by then, the company has said in a blog post. It was conceived with mobile devices in mind and ditched a decade's worth of Gmail cruft in favor of tools focused on email efficiency, such as the way it displayed attachments right in the inbox view and incorporated a built-in task manager.

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

Google has announced that Gmail Offline will be removed from the Chrome Web Store in December, because it isn't needed anymore. What started out as an invite-only service, turned into a pretty popular email app.

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. Let us know in the comment section below.
