Inbox- Alternate Mailing App by Google To Be Discontinued From March, Next Year

"We know change is hard, so we've created a transition guide to help you switch from Inbox to the new Gmail with ease," Izatt added

Google is set to shut down its alternate mailing app “Inbox” in March 2019, giving users time to shift to the traditional Gmail by then, the company has said in a blog post.

Launched in 2014, “Inbox” was introduced as an innovative new email app that lived alongside Gmail and served as an experimental platform for Google to try newer mailing features that could be incorporated in Gmail later.

However, it could not gather enough user base and updates to justify its existence.

“We want to take a more focussed approach to help us bring the best email experience to everyone. As a result, we’re planning to focus solely 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.

“Inbox” came with provisions for snoozing emails to later, trying latest artificial intelligence (AI)-powered experiences like Smart Reply, Nudges, high-priority notifications along with gesture and bundling features to manage the messages.

“We know change is hard, so we’ve created a transition guide to help you switch from Inbox to the new Gmail with ease,” Izatt added.
