Inbox, Google’s playground for email innovation, is going bye-bye

Inbox, Google’s playground for email innovation, is going bye-bye”

Google said it wants to focus exclusively on Gmail, which has recently adopted a number of Inbox's features like smart replies and snoozing emails. On the app's Web page, Google confirms that Inbox will be shuttered in March 2019; the company instead points users toward the new Gmail for numerous same features.

Google Gmail product manager Matthew Izatt revealed today on the official The Keyword blog of the company that Google Inbox is being retired in 2019. The company launched a new interface for Gmail this year which introduced several Inbox features.

Though Inbox featured some redundancy with Gmail, it's a shame to see it go.

Inbox by Gmail was an app created in 2014, that would help users get more customisable email features. This included better sorting for email, as well as the ability to snooze emails to come back to your inbox tomorrow, next week or even a few months from now. It's a service many of us use every single day. Smart replies also provide you with suggested phrases so that you can quickly tap on them and send an email reply in seconds, and thanks to hover actions, on your computer you can point to emails in your inbox and quickly take action, like archiving or marking them as read, without actually opening the email.

Inbox was an experimental playground of sorts that Gmail users could switch to (and from) easily as it used the same account and data sources as Gmail.

Google has published a support guide to help Inbox users make the transition back to Gmail.
