  • Inbox by Gmail

According to the company, Inbox by Gmail will be shutting down in March of 2019. One Inbox feature that I use extensively - grouped emails - isn't yet in Gmail and there is no word as to when, or if, it will be coming to Gmail. In that announcement, the internet giant also said the Gmail Offline Chrome app would stop working at some point and recommended that users remove it and install the new offline functionality for the Gmail app instead.

Google has stated its Inbox app has been put on a life support at the moment, with March 2019 as the tentative window when the app will finally be pushed into oblivion.

When Google launched Inbox in 2014, it was only made available through an invite system.

For customers, making a move from Inbox to the original Gmail application will not be a hard job. Compared to Gmail, Inbox is something of a dark horse and has often been regarded as a testing ground for features that later make their way into Gmail. With mobile devices, we are online all the time, and Inbox was a way to build an e-mail client around the mobile device that you use all the time. The sent link leaves your mailbox from where the recipient is able to access it via his Gmail account or another email service.

The first Chromebooks were extremely dependent on an internet connection, so to help alleviate that problem, Google published a 'Gmail Offline' app on the Chrome Web Store. He added that for Inbox users, "we know change is hard, so we've created a transition guide to help you switch from Inbox to the new Gmail easily". The app was mostly focused on improving the user's productivity and it has attracted many users within a short timeframe.

Inbox has pioneered numerous features that are now part of the new Gmail. "See you there", says the blog post.
