Google is Killing Inbox

Google has announced that Inbox is to close in six months' time.

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.

All of this was capped with the grand redesign of the Gmail website in April, which, in hindsight, appeared to be the final nail in the coffin for Inbox, despite Gmails new coat of paint leaving out bundled email options like Trips, Purchases, and Finances.

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 app presented features not found in the Gmail experience and earned itself some faithful users as a result.

For me, Inbox was an attempt to simplify email and while it certainly had some interesting features, Inbox was too simplified and not really usable because of that.

In a Wednesday blog post, Google said it plans to shut down the email product at the end of March 2019 "to focus exclusively on Gmail". A playground to try out all sorts of new features by way of helping people gey their cluttered inboxes under control, from smart replies to automatically grouping emails of certain kinds together.

Google launched Inbox in 2014 as an alternative to the company's popular Gmail web service. Inbox made it easier to deal with all of the email that we get every single day.

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. Are you going to start using Gmail again or move over to another email client?
