Google’s Inbox Email App Will Cease To Exist, Come March 2019

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.

Some four years ago, Google debuted Inbox as a Gmail-linked email app that attempted to make sifting through the ol' electronic messaging easier by mixing tasks and reminders into emails.

Philippines: 10 million people in the path of Mangkhut
The Global Disaster Alert and Coordination System said the more than 27.3 million people will be exposed to the power of Mangkhut. PAGASA defines a super typhoon as a weather disturbance carrying more than 220 kilometers per hour (kph) of maximum center winds.

In addition to the transition guide, Google also recently promoted five features in the new Gmail to entice Inbox fans. Things that started out in the app like Smart Reply and viewing attachments right within the main screen have been added to Gmail, many coming in the last big redesign.

Inbox, Google's secondary email app, will shutter by the end of March next year, the company has announced.

Apple's iOS 12: September 17 release brings many new features
While the iPhones will be the Wednesday's main attraction, Apple's growing smartwatch business will see stage time, too. The iPhone XS starts from $999 for a 64-gigabyte device , and the iPhone XS Max starts from $1099 for a 64G device.

Bad news is that some features are not available on Gmail and that Inbox users may have to use suggested alternatives, e.g. labels or filters, or stop using certain features as they are not available.

Follow-ups (nudges): Gmail occasionally moves old emails to the top of your inbox with a suggestion to reply or follow up. The cross-platform app was created to clean up the mess of your Gmail inbox by categorizing mail by type such as social media notifications, promotional emails, spam, and your regular correspondence. 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. Addressing Inbox users in the blog post, Izatt wrote, "All your conversations are already waiting for you in Gmail".
