Google will shut down its Inbox app on April 22019-03-19 15:05 by Daniela
Tech giant Google will shut down its popular email app - Inbox on April 2. Anyone who logged into Google's Inbox app on Tuesday was greeted by a notification telling them to just download regular Gmail already. It also warned users that Inbox will not be available after April 2.
"This app will be going away in 15 days," the alert reads. "You can find your favorite inbox features in the Gmail app. Your messages are already waiting for you."
Google launched Inbox in 2014 as an invite-only beta. Gmail managed to change the way we thought about email with conversations, and Inbox tried to do it again with "bundles." For those who haven't used Inbox, a bundle is basically an automated Gmail label with some extra features. Emails for hotel reservations, car rentals, and airline tickets would automatically appear in the "Travel" bundle, for example. You could also manually bundle emails to teach Inbox how you wanted your email organized.
For the last four-plus years, Inbox has been a testing ground of sorts for features that eventually arrived in Gmail proper, including swipe gestures, computer-generated responses, and a snooze button. Inbox never got the same level of support as Gmail, which is the default way to manage emails in many offices around the world thanks to G Suite. After Gmail received an overhaul last September, Google said it would shut down Inbox to focus on a single app.
