After launching their Gmail alternative Inbox in October 2014, Google has today announced they're killing off the innovative client in favour of concentrating on Gmail proper. For users, Inbox was a lighter version of Gmail, an email app focusing on what matter most while still offering some nifty features that weren't available to Gmail users. In it, Google walks customers through using some of their favorite features from Inbox in Gmail as well as discover new ones. Recently, Google updated its Gmail app with some new features. "As a result, we're planning to focus exclusively on Gmail and say goodbye to Inbox". The good news is, you have until March 2019 before you have to switch to Gmail or another app.
The search giant said Wednesday that it would "say goodbye" to Inbox at the end of March 2019.
The Verge wrote that the Inbox did not see enough updates but fans went through this just so they can have a better or a different email experience.More news: Winning captain Lloris pleads guilty in drink drive charge
Google has announced that Gmail Offline will be removed from the Chrome Web Store in December, because it isn't needed anymore. At that time, the company will discontinue the app. Five months later, though, and Google looks to have changed its mind. Both these services made quite the splash among tech enthusiasts, though not so much for their shared history of initially forcing users to register via an invite-only system. There are tons of email services and email apps that accompany them. 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.
