Google terminates Google Inbox service

  • Google is Killing Inbox

As Google plans to pull its plug on the Inbox by 2019, it is integrating some of the important features of Inbox to Gmail. Google has announced the Inbox is going away in March of next year. Numerous features we know and love from Inbox were brought into Gmail proper when they launched a much needed re-design back in April this year.

Inbox, Google's innovative app for email, has received its death sentence.

The closure of Inbox was hinted at when Google rolled out the new Gmail to users earlier in the year.

Google suggests users start using Gmail again which now features most of the tools originally found in Inbox.

They've complained that Inbox's handy features, like bundling of trip-related emails and GitHub/Trello notifications, haven't quite made their way to Gmail yet, and who knows if they will. All your conversations are already waiting for you in Gmail. You could just use the pre-loaded labels like updates, purchases, trips, and so on, but Inbox supported custom labels as well.

In a disappointing move, Google announced today that it will kill Inbox, the simpler interface for Gmail, at the end of March 2019. In fact, most of its best features have, including Unified Inbox. Back in the day, the Gmail app or desktop experience would come with limited options, making Inbox by Gmail a platform to create/expand on ideas.

Now You: Are you affected by the termination of Google Inbox? The app which served as an experimental testbed for Gmail features as well as a streamlined email client for the service, has apparently outlived its welcome with the company.

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