Google is giving Inbox app the axe next year

Google is Killing Inbox

Google has announced that Inbox is to close in six months' time.

The company has announced the end of Inbox via social media, announcing they are ending the service in favour of concentrating on features for Gmail. Fortunately, numerous features users enjoy are available in the new Gmail. The app presented features not found in the Gmail experience and earned itself some faithful users as a result.

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. Back then, many assumed that Google would move all Gmail users to Google Inbox.

The arrival of these features in Gmail rightly spurred speculation that Inbox by Gmail would be retired. Google did not say why it was shutting down Inbox, which was released in 2014 and pitched as a more nimble and experimental email app than the older Gmail app.

In a way, Inbox served as a testbed for future Gmail features.

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

As the curtain falls, Google has prepared a guide for users transitioning from Inbox to Gmail, despite complaints from devoted Inbox users on Twitter. In it, Google walks customers through using some of their favorite features from Inbox in Gmail as well as discover new ones. Let us know in the comment section below.
