Google to Kill Its Inbox App In Favor of Gmail

But in an overhaul to Gmail this year, Google implemented numerous innovative features that were introduced in Inbox.

The first Chromebooks were extremely dependent on an internet connection, so to help alleviate that problem, Google published a 'Gmail Offline' app on the Chrome Web Store.

Google revealed that it will terminate Google Inbox in March 2019. Inbox was also a lot cleaner than Gmail, which tends to feel cluttered.

Since its launch, Google has used Inbox to launch a number of innovations for Gmail including Smart Reply, the ability to snooze emails until a later time and more.

"We know change is hard, so we've created a transition guide to help you switch from Inbox to the new Gmail easily", Izatt added. All these features are not present in gmail app at that time.

Though not entirely unexpected, the announcement is disappointing, particularly to those who have been heavy Inbox users since its inception.

Google seemingly makes the case that Inbox fans shouldn't be upset because Gmail has already absorbed enough of what made Inbox special. 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".

Google plans to shut down its Inbox email app as it refocuses on Gmail as its preferred email client.

A few features aren't coming over, however, including pinned emails, reminders, and bundles. In the new Gmail, you'll find workflows that are similar to your favourite ones in Inbox.

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

When Inbox launched, Google introduced and implemented new features such as email bundling and snoozing.
