Google Inbox is being discontinued

Inbox by Gmail isn't going away immediately - users will have until March 2019 to decide on an alternative. However, there is a pretty big following for Inbox, so Google may face some backlash here.

Now we have an official date for the app's end: Inbox by Gmail will be permanently out of office by the end of March 2019, the tech giant announced on Wednesday.

Google has chose to shut down its "Inbox by Gmail" app by March next year.

Since its launch, Google has used Inbox to launch a number of innovations for Gmail including Smart Reply, the ability to snooze emails until a later time and more.

Though Inbox featured some redundancy with Gmail, it's a shame to see it go. In the new experience, users can directly access actions on the emails within the Gmail inbox, snooze emails until a later time, send emails under a confidential mode, and more.

In a way, Inbox served as a testbed for future Gmail features. The company launched a new interface for Gmail this year which introduced several Inbox features. It's a service many of us use every single day.

The impact: This means that for those that use Inbox for their email, they'll need to look elsewhere to deal with email.

Nearly four years ago, Google introduced a new email client called Inbox. In it, Google walks customers through using some of their favorite features from Inbox in Gmail as well as discover new ones.

Google has published a support guide to help Inbox users make the transition back to Gmail.
