Google is killing off its Gmail alternative Inbox

Share

As Google plans to pull its plug on the Inbox by 2019, it is integrating some of the important features of Inbox to Gmail. Hopefully, we see it before the March 2019 retirement date for Inbox. Numerous features we know and love from Inbox were brought into Gmail proper when they launched a much needed re-design back in April this year. Inbox made a similarly radical change to the way users managed email with "bundles". Inbox marked a clear departure from the aging design of Gmail, and focused on a mobile-first experience. All your conversations are already waiting for you in Gmail.

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. For pinning emails, Google suggests to either use stars or custom labels, and use the search tool to find starred or labeled messages. As a result, we're planning to focus exclusively on Gmail and say goodbye to Inbox by Gmail at the end of March 2019. Recently, Google updated its Gmail app with some new features.

Even the most recent features included in Gmail, such as "Snooze Emails", "Smart Reply", "Hover Actions", and Follow-ups (or nudges), were initially present only on Inbox by Gmail. This merging of features led to uncertainty about the future of Inbox, and ultimately, to its demise. Back in the day, the Gmail app or desktop experience would come with limited options, making Inbox by Gmail a platform to create/expand on ideas. 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.
