Google's mailing app 'Inbox' to discontinue from March 2019


Over the years features from Inbox have migrated over to Gmail including smart reply and most recently snoozing. It started with a single compose line for heaven's sake.

Enabling offline functionality in Gmail for web is pretty straightforward.

According to a report by Fast Company, Google is giving its popular bundled email client service, Inbox the axe early next year.

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

Things went quiet afterward and Google neglected Inbox for the most part.

Google's Inbox, a service that provided a number of smart new features like snoozing emails and integration with Google Now Assistant reminders - essentially treating emails like individual tasks - will be shut down in March next year, a little over four years since its introduction in the October of 2014.

One Inbox by Gmail feature that still hasn't made its way over to the standard Gmail service is the email bundling. Google has not revealed the exact date of the shut down but it has created a transition guide to help the users of Inbox shift to Gmail. You could just use the pre-loaded labels like updates, purchases, trips, and so on, but Inbox supported custom labels as well. Let us know in the comment section below. These users will have to switch back; good news is that the data itself remains the same and that users don't have to do any importing or exporting.

Responses indicate that users are not happy, with some going as far as suggesting that they would be happy to pay a subscription fee to be able to keep Inbox.

Mark today down as the day Google got to announce it's killing the Inbox.
