With that in mind, it isn't surprising to see the purge continue, and now Google has announced that it will discontinue the Gmail Offline Chrome app as well. Inbox would automatically group emails into categories such as "Purchases" for receipts and "Updates" for shipping notifications.
GOOGLE IS KILLING OFF its Inbox app, having revealed plans to put it out to pasture in March 2019.
The page suggests alternatives for the Inbox features pin, bundles and reminders. Gmail started picking up some nifty features of its own over time too, such as basic gesture customization, Smart Compose, AI-driven priority alerts, and un-sending emails. The death of Inbox is not entirely out of the blue - numerous features that made it unique have become part of Gmail over the years.
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. In fact, most of its best features have, including Unified Inbox.
For me, Inbox was an attempt to simplify email and while it certainly had some interesting features, Inbox was too simplified and not really usable because of that.
Users who are using inbox for years will be very upset. Although, some of these are a stretch. But, Now Google announces that Inbox will be shut down by the end of 2019.
Inbox has pioneered numerous features that are now part of the new Gmail. But after the company brought over most of the app's various features to the redesign Gmail, many questioned the client's future. 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.
