Google is giving Inbox app the axe next year

Google is Killing Inbox

Google informed The Verge that none of the Inbox team had been let go which is good news for the future of Gmail. That why they decide to shut down by the end of March 2019.

Since its launch, Google has used Inbox to launch a number of innovations for Gmail including Smart Reply, the ability to snooze emails until a later time and more. 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.

The closure of Inbox was hinted at when Google rolled out the new Gmail to users earlier in the year. At that time, any Gmail addresses that were tied to Inbox will revert to the standard Gmail experience, and the mobile app will stop working.

Over the years, Inbox became a testing ground for features that include the Smart Reply, which later made its way into Gmail. This included better sorting for email, as well as the ability to snooze emails to come back to your inbox tomorrow, next week or even a few months from now.

A "lighter" version of Gmail, Inbox app has some features that are not available on Gmail.

Inbox began as an email experiment almost four years ago for Google. As a result, we're planning to focus exclusively on Gmail and say goodbye to Inbox by Gmail at the end of March 2019.

The new Gmail has also adopted the "Material Design" visual theme that Google originally introduced to Android in 2014, with more white space and the company's Product Sans typeface.

For bundles, Google suggests to use filters and labels, and for reminders Google Tasks or Google Keep.
