Google decides to kill 'Inbox' app four years after its launch

Google is Killing Inbox

Inbox by Gmail, an email experiment by Google is set to go the way of the dodo bird.

"Over the past four years you've helped us make email better", a statement said.

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

Google announced a major update for offline message access in the main Gmail app earlier this year. Inbox team will now work with Gmail team to bring more innovative features that they were thinking to add in Inbox.

For $59.99, you get a pair with rechargable batteries that can attach to your Nintendo Switch to charge when not in use. Nintendo announced new wireless NES controllers today as an exclusive for subscribers of the Switch's online service.

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. G Suite users must also ensure that the company which their G Suite email address is tied to has enabled this feature through the Admin Console. Two other features - pinning emails and reminders - are also missing in Gmail. For example, emails that are specifically for online transactions will be bundled together in a single inbox. Google confirmed that those features will come to Gmail soon, but didn't confirm the timeline for it. He added that for Inbox users, "we know change is hard, so we've created a transition guide to help you switch from Inbox to the new Gmail easily".

Google Gmail product supervisor Matthew Izatt wrote in a blog put up that Inbox customers can consult an on-line data to familiarize themselves with Gmail.

But while there were some satisfactions - among them a first clean sheet in four games - England remain a work in progress.

The incoming discontinuation of Inbox shouldn't be a huge surprise to many since it never achieved mainstream success because it wasn't being used by a lot of people. "Inbox enthusiasts-some of whom used the app precisely because it wasn't Gmail-will take the news hard, even if Inbox's influence on the current Gmail has been profound".
