I quite like Inbox. I’ve got it installed on my phone right now and I appreciate the exciting and additional features. I installed it because Gmail, whether on the t’internet or on your phone, has remained pretty samey for quite a while.
Recently though, I’ve noticed that Gmail has been getting some additional tweaks, and now Google has announced that Inbox is headed for the bin.
Like Brexit, you won’t have long to wait for the inevitable, crushing, end. It’ll be discontinued at around the same time – March next year.
Matthew Izatt, Product Manager at Gmail, states…
Inbox by Gmail has been a great place to experiment with new ideas like snoozing emails to later, as well as try the latest AI-powered experiences like Smart Reply, Nudges and high-priority notifications to help you stay productive.
Four years after launching Inbox in 2014, we’ve learned a lot about how to make email better—and we’ve taken popular Inbox experiences and added them into Gmail to help more than a billion people get more done with their emails everyday. As we look to the future, we want to take a more focused approach that will help us bring the best email experience to everyone. As a result, we’re planning to focus solely on Gmail and say goodbye to Inbox by Gmail at the end of March 2019.
So, uninstall it dude. It’s going.
