Google is shutting down its Inbox app

Google is shutting down its Inbox app

When Inbox launched, Google introduced and implemented new features such as email bundling and snoozing. Many will likely go back to using the Gmail app, which did get a nice Material Design makeover a few months ago, and has also incorporated a number of Inbox's features already. In it, Google walks customers through using some of their favorite features from Inbox in Gmail as well as discover new ones. All these features are not present in gmail app at that time.

Inbox, Google's secondary email app, will shutter by the end of March next year, the company has announced. Google rolled out a complete redesign of Gmail in April this year incorporating almost off the key features of Inbox.

Follow-ups (nudges): Gmail occasionally moves old emails to the top of your inbox with a suggestion to reply or follow up.

As Google plans to pull its plug on the Inbox by 2019, it is integrating some of the important features of Inbox to Gmail. Maybe Inbox was doomed from the start, but erase the frustration of Inbox users on this sad day.

Bad news is that some features are not available on Gmail and that Inbox users may have to use suggested alternatives, e.g. labels or filters, or stop using certain features as they are not available. There are tons of email services and email apps that accompany them.

Google Gmail product manager Matthew Izatt wrote in a blog post that Inbox users can consult an online guide to familiarize themselves with Gmail. After that, you're free to delete the Gmail Offline Chrome app and then continue forward using only Gmail for web.

Nearly four years ago, Google introduced a new email client called Inbox.
