Google is Killing Inbox

Google is Killing Inbox

Gmail, by comparison, is very busy, even the new version.

Why it matters: Inbox by Google users will be disappointed to hear that the email client is being discontinued next year.

Now we have an official date for the app's end: Inbox by Gmail will be permanently out of office by the end of March 2019, the tech giant announced on Wednesday.

To ease the pain, perhaps for itself as well as its users, Google created a user guide for asylum seekers who will be vacating Inbox for Gmail over the course of the next seven months. After four years of service, many - although not all - of Inbox's features have been incorporated into Gmail, and Google now feels it is time to concentrate on a single email tool. The death of Inbox is not entirely out of the blue - numerous features that made it unique have become part of Gmail over the years. Inbox launched in the time when user could do only limited things with Gmail. Google was pretty adamant about the future of Inbox saying at that time that there's no reason users should be anxious, as the app is here to stay.
