Inbox isn’t Google’s only email app casualty this year

Google to kill Inbox early next year

Google is Killing Inbox

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. Hopefully, we see it before the March 2019 retirement date for Inbox. This added functionality pulled a good number of users away from Gmail as they added to the email experience without combining the usual headaches caused by using third-party email clients.

A few features aren't coming over, however, including pinned emails, reminders, and bundles. Gmail started picking up some nifty features of its own over time too, such as basic gesture customization, Smart Compose, AI-driven priority alerts, and un-sending emails. This update brought more of Inbox's features to Gmail, adding to those that had already made their way across.

Google, however, did not exactly reveal why it is shutting down the Inbox app. Google Gmail product manager Matthew Izatt announced this in a blog post. At the time when it launched Gmail lacked numerous features it has today.

Taking to Twitter , Ms Markle wrote: "I am not candy coating anything anymore!" "He was the one who was always there for her. Meghan, Duchess of Sussex , has been labeled a "DuchA-" by half-sister Samantha Markle in her latest rant.

The service - which came in the form of iOS and Android apps and its own website - funneled mails from your Gmail account to a different, slightly more gesture-driven interface with its own unique set of options.

What do you think about Google killing support for Inbox? Gmail also gets more than one billion monthly active users as of 2018 - quite a bit more than all other webmail platforms combined - so even with Google's marketing dollars, Inbox had a challenging road ahead of it from the beginning. Having about six months of warning will give Inbox fans a chance to get their personal workflow going in Gmail, but it'll probably never be the same. It's a service many of us use every single day.
