Google to Raze Its Inbox App In Want of Gmail

Google is Killing Inbox

Google is Killing Inbox

It's likely that Inbox was never meant to function as a standalone product, especially when Google had Gmail, the most popular mailing client. Now, though, it looks like the app will be no more.

At launch the initially invite-only app was pitched as the "future of email".

Google has finally chose to kill its "Inbox by Gmail" application by March next year.

"We're planning to focus exclusively on Gmail and say goodbye to Inbox by Gmail at the end of March 2019", Matthew Izatt Product Manager, Gmail said in blog post.

But now Google is calling time on the app, likely because it hasn't really kept the app updated over the years and a lot of the features Inbox introduced have made their way over to Gmail.

Confidential mode: This feature lets you set an expiration date for all your sensitive email.

"Inbox by Gmail has been a huge location to experiment with current ideas admire slumbering emails to later, as well to try the most in vogue AI-powered experiences admire Natty Acknowledge, Nudges and high-priority notifications to help you quit productive", Izatt said. The sent link leaves your mailbox from where the recipient is able to access it via his Gmail account or another email service.

Inbox now joins a collection of now-defunct Google apps at the side of its Spaces messaging app and Google Reader.

There are still few features that have not arrived to Gmail yet. Perhaps, we could yet see this feature added to the Gmail app in no-distant future.

Google announced on Wednesday that it's shutting down its Gmail Offline Chrome app; it will be removed from the Chrome Web Store after December 3. So there is no point to continue with two email apps by the Google with nearly same features.
