Google Inbox is being discontinued

Google Inbox is being discontinued

On the app's Web page, Google confirms that Inbox will be shuttered in March 2019; the company instead points users toward the new Gmail for numerous same features.

Now that the big Gmail redesign has arrived, Google is shedding some dead weight by retiring Inbox.

When Inbox launched, Google introduced and implemented new features such as email bundling and snoozing.

Mosquito trap tests positive for West Nile Virus in Chatham-Kent
CDPH encourages everyone to follow the "4 D's" which can help prevent mosquito bites and the spread of West Nile virus. Rain gutters, drains , unused flower pots, and bird baths should be checked for standing water.

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. Inbox was Google's effort at email innovation in a mobile-centric era, and with its departure, we could see another prolonged period of Gmail stagnation.

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. In it, Google walks customers through using some of their favorite features from Inbox in Gmail as well as discover new ones. While the exact date was not mentioned by the company, Google did release a Support Guide so that users of Inbox can make the transition to Gmail. Inbox made it easier to deal with all of the email that we get every single day. Are you going to start using Gmail again or move over to another email client?
