Google terminates Google Inbox service

Google terminates Google Inbox service

In March 2019, we'll have to say our goodbyes. Google has announced the Inbox is going away in March of next year.

Google launched the Inbox app in the year 2014 in order to improve Gmail. Key among those features will be bundling, that can help users customise inbox tabs and notifications.

The closure of Inbox was hinted at when Google rolled out the new Gmail to users earlier in the year.

Verizon 5G Home Service Launches Oct. 1: Here's All the Details
The monthly fee seems fair: US$50 for existing Verizon customers and US$70 for new customers. 5G promises peak speeds of 1 Gbps. To compare, the average home internet speeds in the United States as of May measured in at 92.93 Mbps, according to PCMag .

Unfortunately, Google looks to be shutting down the test lab as it mainlines more features to Gmail. "As a result, we're planning to focus exclusively on Gmail and say goodbye to "Inbox" at the end of March 2019", Matthew Izatt, Product Manager at Gmail, wrote in a blog post late on Wednesday. All your conversations are already waiting for you in Gmail. For pinning emails, Google suggests to either use stars or custom labels, and use the search tool to find starred or labeled messages. But after the company brought over most of the app's various features to the redesign Gmail, many questioned the client's future.

So, for those who got a lot of use out of Gmail Offline, this could be seen as the end of an era, but it makes sense that Google would want to consolidate users around Gmail for web instead of having them use a bunch of different apps.

What do you think about Google killing support for Inbox? 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. And I have six months to mull this over. But. Gmail also gets more than one billion monthly active users as of 2018 - quite a bit more than all other webmail platforms combined - so even with Google's marketing dollars, Inbox had a challenging road ahead of it from the beginning.
