Google is Killing Inbox

Apparently, this won't come as a surprise for many, though the app has its own fair share of fans out there.

At launch the initially invite-only app was pitched as the "future of email". He additionally said, "All of your conversations are already looking ahead to you in Gmail", that manner that Inbox customers obtained't must migrate their saved emails to Gmail.

In a Wednesday blog post, Google said it plans to shut down the email product at the end of March 2019 "to focus exclusively on Gmail".

But now Google is calling time on the app, likely because it hasn't really kept the app updated over the years and a lot of the features Inbox introduced have made their way over to Gmail. The news was on Google's blog The Keyword, with Google justifying the closure by committing to "a more focused approach that will help us bring the best email experience to everyone".

Confidential mode: This feature lets you set an expiration date for all your sensitive email. Gmail now has the same Smart Reply feature that is able to provide contextual suggestions based on the email received. The sender is always in charge of how long the recipient gets to access the message-it's all about putting a time-limit on the access granted to the other party. For now, email snoozing is only available on Gmail on the web.

In fact, given the way Gmail has benefitted from a host of features that originally started at Inbox, the move to shut out the latter can be considered to be a well thought out strategy wherein Inbox served as a testbed of sorts. In that announcement, the internet giant also said the Gmail Offline Chrome app would stop working at some point and recommended that users remove it and install the new offline functionality for the Gmail app instead.

Google has announced that it will shut down its alternate mailing application "Inbox" in March 2019.

What's more, those used to the Reminders feature from Inbox can consider using the Google Tasks and Google Keep apps, the two of which are accessible for iOS and Android.
