"We're planning to focus exclusively on Gmail and say goodbye to Inbox by Gmail at the end of March 2019", Matthew Izatt Product Manager, Gmail said in blog post. Inbox users will get most of the features in new Gmail, but they will still miss the Inbox for sure.

Launched about four years ago, the Inbox email app was created to work alongside Google's popular email service Gmail.

Google has chose to discontinue its Inbox app - not to be confused with Gmail - and then completely shutter the service by next March.

Some of the other features which included "Highlights" to being important emails front and center, "Reminders" that reminded users about upcoming events and "Assists" which works with reminders to provide additional information.

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. It brought several notable features to improve the email experience. The Inbox app will be completely removed from all stores. The company launched this service 4 years ago as a modern alternative to the classic Gmail app and web versions.

When Inbox by Gmail was first announced and released back in October 2014, it definitely offered up added functionality and a fresh take on Google's dated Gmail client. The new features can enable users to customise notifications and inbox tabs through bundling. All your conversations are already waiting for you in Gmail. "It was conceived with mobile devices in mind and ditched a decade's worth of Gmail cruft in favor of tools focused on email efficiency".

In fact, given the way Gmail has benefitted from a host of features that originally started at Inbox, the move to shut out the latter can be considered to be a well thought out strategy wherein Inbox served as a testbed of sorts.
