Google has decided to shut down its ‘Inbox by Gmail’ app by March next year. While the exact date was not mentioned by the company, Google did release a Support Guide so that users of Inbox can make the transition to Gmail. The change comes into effect soon after the search giant rolled out a design overhaul for Gmail from June this year.

Inbox by Gmail was an app created in 2014, that would help users get more customisable email features. Back in the day, the Gmail app or desktop experience would come with limited options, making Inbox by Gmail a platform to create/expand on ideas.

Even the most recent features included in Gmail, such as ‘Snooze Emails’, ‘Smart Reply’, ‘Hover Actions’, and Follow-ups (or nudges), were initially present only on Inbox by Gmail. As Google looks to shut down the service by the 2019 deadline, Gmail users might find more features from Inbox by Gmail being integrated into their regular email experience.

As per the given timeline, Google can be expected to introduce other features from Inbox into the Gmail desktop and app. Key among those features will be bundling, that can help users customise inbox tabs and notifications. In addition, users can create specific labels by which email can be filtered into various categories.
